Like a bandit

The Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Inspector General is investigating allegations that two former Arkansas Department of Health employees got away with over $42,000 in travel expenses.  No charges have been filed against the two engineers, Craig Burger and Mark McIntosh.  Rob Moritz has the story.

The state audit found Burger and McIntosh filed false travel expenses over several years and were reimbursed a total of $42,673. Also, the department has questioned the authenticity of another $9,101 in travel expense reimbursements the two received.

“Unbelievable,” Rep. Mike Burris, D-Malvern, said after hearing the audit report.

The audit report said Department of Health officials noticed last year that Burger had been reimbursed for 4,529 miles of travel for work in April 2008, but had actually traveled only 2,349 miles. Similar mileage discrepancies were discovered for May and June 2008.
