Ex-aide to Quackenbush target of criminal probe

June 30, 2000

One day after the resignation of Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush, a former aide has been targeted in a criminal probe alleging he accepted kickbacks while on the job. Attorney General Bill Lockyer opened the investigation of George Grays after evidence surfaced that he had taken a “substantial amount” of money from a Sacramento football camp.

Grays, who resigned from the department of insurance after the Northridge earthquake scandal broke, had allegedly given the camp $263,000 in donations from the non-profit foundation set up with Northridge settlement monies. Grays also faces a civil lawsuit by Lockyer for his role in establishing and running the foundation.
