D.C.'s Chief Financial Officer Natwar Gandhi is speaking out in a wrongful termination lawsuit, saying his co-worker tried to control the release of public audits, reports the Associated Press.

Gandhi is accused of trying to control the content and release of audits from his office. It's one of the claims the former head of Internal Affairs for Gandhi is making in a lawsuit.

Robert Andary says he didn't agree with how Gandhi "inserted himself" into the auditing process and that Gandhi feared making audits public would "make him look bad."

The Securities and Exchange Commission has launched an inquiry into audits in Gandhi's office. A spokesman for the agency says Andary's reports were not changed or kept from the public.
