NYCHA 2nd in command resigns following lead paint scandalPosted: Updated:
Another New York City Housing Authority official has resigned following the recent lead paint testing scandal.
A mayoral spokeswoman said NYCHA General Manager Michael Kelly handed in his resignation.
Kelly was NYCHA head Shola Olatoye's second in command.
Several people are calling for her to resign after NYCHA was accused of submitting false claims to the government that it had conducted lead inspections in the roughly 55,000 NYCHA apartments across the city.
The report revealed the city agency falsified those test results for at least four years.
