FBI Investigating St. L County Contract Awards

St. Louis County mum on report FBI is investigating contracts

From KMOX radio

KMOX News is awaiting a response from St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley to our report that a federal criminal investigation of county government is underway.

Reputable sources who spoke to KMOX News on the condition of anonymity confirm the FBI is actively investigating several high level people with connections to the St. Louis County Executive's office.

One focus of the probe, which has been going on for months, involves questions about whether St. Louis county contracts have been properly awarded.

Since mid-January, KMOX news has been making repeated requests of the St. Louis County Counselor, under the Missouri Sunshine law, for information on federal subpoenas that have been served or any documents turned over to the feds.

County Counselor Patricia Redington will neither confirm nor deny there is an investigation, but she has repeatedly refused to grant our request, saying the county has closed its records pertaining to subpoenas about county employees.

The Missouri Attorney General's office, which oversees the state sunshine law, is reviewing a formal complaint against St. Louis County filed by KMOX.

    The Feds are actively investigating the St. Louis County Executive’s office. And while they’re at it, they should also investigate county counselor Patricia Reddington stonewalling KMOX’s sunshine requests for subpoenas of county employees.

    About time! There seems to be some violations of conduct. County workers being asked to contribute to a campaign? Doing campaign work on County taxpayer time? If true, some one needs to be held accounntable

    Lets throw back the covers of St. Louis County government and see "who is in bed with who" over there. Especially with this trash mess that the county has illegally created.
