ATLANTA (AP) — The former deputy director of the state ethics commission said no one there said anything about eliminating her job until she presented the details of an investigation into complaints against the governor.

Sherilyn Streicker, former deputy executive secretary, testified Thursday in the trial over a lawsuit filed by her former boss, Stacey Kalberman.

Kalberman, former executive secretary of the agency, alleges commissioners cut her salary and eliminated Streicker's position as they sought approval in May 2011 to issue subpoenas as part of the agency's investigation into Gov. Nathan Deal's 2010 campaign reports and financial disclosures.

Streicker testified she believed commissioners wanted to stop the investigation.

Commissioners have denied wrongdoing. The governor was later cleared of major violations in the ethics probe and agreed to pay $3,350 in administrative fees.
