ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– The You Paid For It team grills St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley over a subcontract awarded to his political appointee on the St. Louis County Police Board Gregory Sansone.
Sansone is the head of the police board. The county awarded a contract for work for the county police department to a prime contractor. That company turned around and gave a subcontract to the company owned by Gregory Sansone for $3.7 million for the work at the police department.
But the county charter prevents public officials from profiting from county tax dollars.
Dooley insists there was nothing wrong with Sansone’s company getting the contract. Dooley says his county counselor gave the deal the green light.
But investigator Elliott Davis had a lot of questions about this deal.
Police Chief Tim Fitch has called in the FBI to take a look. And St. Louis County Councilman Greg Quinn is calling for hearings to get the bottom of it. To Quinn, it does sound like a conflict of interest with Dooley’s political appointee benefiting from county tax dollars.
See how Dooley defends this deal when Elliott Davis comes calling with pointed questions.
