HAYWARD (KCBS) – The husband and wife team who used to run a soon-to-be-defunct Alameda County social services agency have been charged with misuse of public funds and grand theft.

About a year ago, Alameda County officials began investigating the Associated Community Action Program, or ACAP, because of possible financial irregularities.

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley is now charging ACAP’s former executive director Nanette Dillard, and her husband, Paul Daniels with making off with as much as a million dollars in cash.

Dillard and Daniels were in charge of obtaining grants for the agency and dealing with the payroll. O’Malley said the alleged criminal activity came to light a year ago.

“ACAP is an organization that was designed to help low-income residents of Alameda County get jobs, housing and education,” said O’Malley. “It’s been in existence since 1974. In 1984, the current joint powers agreement was reached and it’s been a very vibrant organization until the last couple of years.”

That joint powers agreement means Alameda County cities and their elected officials serve on the board. Dillard and Daniels were allegedly caught on video a year ago removing boxes of records from their offices late at night.

    This is a litany of Lies perpetrated by CORRUPT DA Nancy O’Malley and her political posse Scott Haggerty, Nate Miley, Diana Souza, et. al. They should all be becalled RECALLED because they not fit to hold public office, If you can grant equal time, include your fax number. Otherwise, print the following quote:
    “The county employee, the executive director reported to the board. The board is ultimately responsible for what occurs there…based on what I read at the Bay Area News Group. The board had many problems meeting as a quorum, and a Freedom of Information Act request by Bay Area News Group for number of the board’s previous meetings show that they only met once in all of 2010 to give direction to the staff. As a whole, the governing board did not take responsibility over management … They did not take fiduciary responsibility, Miley said he was stepping aside after a Bay Area News Group editorial said Miley should be replaced on the board since his daughter worked for ACAP.
