What's up with Erin Toll?
Colorado's Division of Real Estate director is suddenly "on leave," shortly after telling the media that a state legislator was under investigation.
The day after Toll made that public comment, the Division of Regulatory Agencies issued a statement that the legislator, Sen. Ted Harvey, was not under investigation after all. The probe was into American Home Funding -- a company that Harvey works for.
There's silence everywhere, although The Denver Post gave a glimpse of what may be going on behind the scenes.
In a story under the headline "Mortgage feud boiled over," The Post reports that Toll and the real estate division have been at war with Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch, "in a series of increasingly heated confrontations that have left her claiming she feels threatened and him accusing her of abusing power."
Harvey is one of the players behind a move, scuttled by DORA, to form a board that would have oversight over investigations of mortgage brokers.
