The former Dona Ana County Clerk violated human resource policies when he was in a “intimate relationship” with a coworker, according to a county report.

Scott Krahling, who was elected in 2016, resigned last week following an investigation that revealed he was in a relationship with Rose Ann Vasquez, who began working at the office in in 2016 and was promoted to communications coordinator in 2017 and chief deputy clerk in 2018.

According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, the report said Vasquez “benefited financially and in terms of advancement” from her relationship with Krahling.

The investigation launched after another employee filed a complaint. A private investigator was hired.

The Sun-News reported that Krahling and Vasquez said they ended the relationship prior to her last promotion. However, the report found Krahling made several adjustments to her time records.

The pair also traveled together and spent the night together on work trips.
