Feds open criminal inquiry into port

Feds open criminal inquiry into port, Seattle P-I, Jan. 7, 2008:

The U.S. Attorney for Western Washington is conducting a criminal investigation of the Port of Seattle based on a state performance audit of the port's construction management, which found the port wasted $97.2 million during contracts active from 2004 to 2007.

In a letter sent Friday to Washington state Auditor Brian Sonntag, U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Sullivan asked the auditor not disclose the identities of the people who were interviewed for at least three months because such disclosure "may well impede our criminal investigation."
