Governor Blunt: No Knowledge of Federal Investigation into His Office

APRIL 19, 2006 - Posted at 3:13 p.m. CST

 

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - Governor Blunt casts doubt on reports of a federal investigation into his administration.

The Kansas City Star reported last week that federal authorities are investigating how contracts for license offices were awarded to Blunt's political supporters.

Blunt said today that he has no reason to believe the investigation is occuring.

He says no one in the governor's office or the Department of Revenue has been contacted by federal investigators.

But Blunt says the allegations are serious and his administration will look into them.
