Liability for D.C. Tax Scandal?
As investigators continue to look into milllions of dollars stolen from the District's Office of Tax Revenue, one potential way for the city to recover some of its losses has been stalled by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's top legal adviser, Peter Nickles.
Nickels ordered the former city attorney general, Linda Singer, not to pursue a civil lawsuit against the Bank of America for cashing fraudulent checks. One of the bank's former employees was arrested in the scandal. The FBI affidavits charging the bank employee and his alleged co-conspirators said he helped cash checks and moved money through accounts set up for fraudulent businesses. A Washington Post analysis of all suspicious checks to those and other businesses showed that more than $44 million may have been stolen.
