A series of missteps appear to have contributed to the ouster of the city's chief auditor.

Darryl McPherson was relieved of his duties on Thursday. According to City Comptroller Mark Schroeder, McPherson had been notified that he was to be replaced in the near future, but allegations that he took secretive and lewd photos of a female co-worker forced Schroeder's hand.

He has held his post since 2007.
