Shanahan taking leave from law firm

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The head of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety is taking a temporary leave of absence from his law firm following questions about potential conflicts of interest.
    
The move comes little more than a week after The News & Observer of Raleigh reported  that Secretary Kieran Shanahan had continued to provide legal advice to private clients after Gov. Pat McCrory appointed him to oversee the Highway Patrol, state prison system and other law enforcement agencies.
    
Critics of Shanahan's moonlighting had called on him to either disclose his list of clients or resign.
    
Brandon Neuman, a partner in the Shanahan Law Group, announced Tuesday that Shanahan would be on a temporary leave of absence from the firm as he continues to serve in the state post.
