Richmond has hired Sacramento-based Van Dermyden Allen Law Corp. to conduct an internal investigation into a city employee's allegations that the city's number 2 administrator has misused public resources and used intimidation and reprisals to squelch complaints.

Stacie Plummer, 43, a city employee for more than two decades, prompted the investigation by circulating a 59-page complaint, including photographs, to top city officials and county, state and federal investigators.
