KING5 investigation prompts Gov. Gregoire to look into state’s minority contracting program

A KING5 series of stories that looked at possible fraud by companies involved in the state’s minority contracting program has prompted Gov. Chris Gregoire to ask the Washington State Patrol to investigate.

The governor wants patrol investigators to look into whether the abuses detailed in the KING 5 report violated criminal laws, according to KING5’s Web site.

The report raised questions about how one minority-owned contractor — Leajak — was able to continue winning government business after an investigator from the Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises (OMWBE) found evidence otherwise.

Here’s part one of the series:  State officials ignore fraud, waste in minority contracting program by series author, KING5 reporter Susannah Frame.
