Former Corporation for Public Broadcasting Chairman Under Investigation

Kenneth Tomlinson, whose tenure as chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting was controversial, resigned from the CPB's board recently after a critical inspector general's report, and now is under investigation for possible criminal violations.  A New York Times story (here) states that the investigation focuses on the use of federal funds for personal expenses, and the hiring of ghost or unqualified employees.  As a federal enterprise, directors and officers of the CPB are subject to the federal anti-corruption statutes.
