Corruption At MnDOT?

"The Star Tribune has found that MnDOT -- the third-biggest spender among state agencies -- has played by its own rules... A review of tens of thousands of government e-mails, memos and other documents shows that MnDOT often has avoided competition when awarding consulting contracts, has doubled or even tripled payments without bids and has broken laws by putting consultants to work before deals were approved or even funded."
