(KTVI)-- It was a surprising confrontation when I caught up with St Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley for the latest in two scandals hanging over Dooley's administration
In the health department scandal, the county paid $3.5 Million over a 5 year period renting laptops.
Both the City of St. Louis and St. Charles County governments said they don't rent or lease computers at all.
The City of St Louis just spent $3,000 on computers this year, this when Dooley's Health Department spent $608,000 during a four month period this year leasing laptops.
On the issue of conflict of interest, both the City of St. Louis and St. Charles County said their policies prohibit public officials and employees from having even a subcontract for work on public projects.
You'd recall Dooley said it was just fine for then St. Louis County Police Board Chairman Gregory Sansone's company to get a multimillion dollar subcontract for work on the county police department lab.
When Elliott Davis tried to grill Dooley on this issue he jumped in the car, shut the door and drove away.
