(KSL News) -- Salt Lake County District Attorney David Yocom has launched a criminal investigation into hiring practices in the county that may target County Mayor Nancy Workman.

That's according to a story in tomorrow's Deseret Morning News. The story says the District Attorney has been looking into the employment of the Mayor's daughter, the chief financial officer of the Murray-based Boys and Girls Club of South Valley.

The newspaper story says the investigation is unrelated to the so-called "guzzler-gate" controversy involving the use of county vehicles by high-ranking officials.

Despite that, Mayor Workman tells the paper, "Tomorrow's my daughter's wedding, and it's an election year. I think it's politics at its worst."

District Attorney Yocom was not available for comment tonight, but no formal charges have been filed.
