PA Governor Tom Corbett and members of his executive team covered up millions of dollars of fraud, corruption, and gross mismanagement in the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of Pennsylvania.

From CorbettGate.com:

Thomas Kimmett, Corbett’s former Senior Deputy Attorney General, sued Corbett and members of his executive team for covering up millions of dollars of fraud, corruption, and gross mismanagement in the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of Pennsylvania.

Rather than ordering an investigation of the matter, Corbett and his team fired Thomas Kimmett, the lawsuit alleges.

In thousands of pages of court documents, Kimmett – a Republican attorney and an accountant – alleged that Corbett’s office paid Private Collection Agencies (PCA’s) millions of dollars they were not owed and gave favored debtors sweetheart deals.

In one example, a “favored” collection agency received a $300,000 commission to collect a debt that had been paid before the agency received the case, Kimmett alleges.

In another case, the OAG reduced a nearly $1 million debt to only $20,000 without proper authorizations or backup documentation.

More than 2,000 cases were never assigned to a collector, hundreds of accounts sat inactive with the collections agencies beyond their designated 6-month limits, and millions of dollars of accounts went without any collection activity for more than two years, Kimmett alleges in a July, 2010 filing of the Statement of Facts. Furthermore, collection agencies failed to pay interest on hundreds of thousands of dollars, as required by their contracts.

Many payments could never be located, he alleged.

Bigger than Bonusgate, details on the Corbettgate scandal are still emerging.
