State Auditor Links Former Iowa DOT Worker To More Fraud
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A former Iowa Department of Transportation employee who already faces charges in connection with a theft and money laundering operation has been linked to other inappropriate transactions by the state auditor.
Auditor Mary Mosiman says David Weigel, of Nevada, is connected to more than $195,000 in improper disbursements, improper disability benefits and uncollected lease payments.
The addendum released Monday is in connection to a report issued in April that links Weigel to more than $580,000 in inappropriate transactions. The addendum covers a period through June.
Weigel is a former employee in the property management section of the agency's right of way office. He's accused of selling state land and pocketing some of the proceeds. He faces numerous charges including theft, money laundering and criminal conduct.
Weigel had no comment Monday.
