Here is one Interim City Manager report McKeithen did not like:

Atherton: McKeithen denies involvement in Johns case
by Andrea Gemmet

"Ms. McKeithen allegedly asked for the investigation to be dropped and questioned town staff about Mr. Johns, according to the former interim city manager, Wende Protzman.

Ms. McKeithen vehemently denies those charges....

Ms. Protzman said Ms. McKeithen questioned her and assistant finance director Paula Pierce about Mr. Johns' behavior, according to her sworn declaration filed in response to the lawsuit. Ms. Protzman also said that Ms. McKeithen made a statement that she took as a request to make the investigation go away.

Ms. McKeithen denied ever making such a statement, and said she doesn't know why Ms. Protzman would claim that she did.
