County Supervisor Bill Horn is not willing to comment on the issue of whether the county should release its internal investigation into allegations of kickbacks at California Children’s Services, Horn’s spokesman John Culea just told me.

The decision not to release the investigation, which I wrote about in this story, was made by Nick Macchione, director of the county’s Health and Human Services Agency, Culea said. Horn is happy to leave it at that, he said.

“This is an interdepartmental thing,” Culea said. “There’s just no comment.”

As I pointed out in my earlier post, while the decision not to release the report on the investigation was made by Macchione and County Chief Administrative Officer Walt Ekard, there’s nothing stopping the Board of Supervisors from overriding that decision and deciding that the public should see the investigation.

Doesn’t look like Bill Horn’s going to be pushing for that any time soon, though. Let’s see what the other supervisors say.
