A spokesman for Gov. McDonnell confirmed Chef Todd Schneider is no longer an employee.

Virginia State Police told CBS 6 they are looking into a reported allegation of “improprieties involving the kitchen operation at the governor’s mansion.”

No charges or arrests have been made, police said.

In Feb. 2012, Schneider appeared on CBS 6’s Virginia This Morning for a cooking demonstration and to talk about an upcoming fundraiser.

Schneider owns Seasons Fine Catering in Midlothian.
