Leahy Asks GAO, Justice to Probe Ray's Conduct
Byline: Jerry Seper, THE WASHINGTON TIMES
The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee wants the Justice Department and the General Accounting Office to investigate whether former independent counsel Robert W. Ray engaged in improper political activities while in office.
Mr. Ray is now a candidate for a U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey.
In letters to Attorney General John Ashcroft and GAO Comptroller General David Walker, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, Vermont Democrat, questioned whether Mr. Ray interviewed consultants and staff, and lined up financial backers while still employed as the chief prosecutor in the $70 million Whitewater investigation.
