Gansler denies sparking investigation into whistleblower | Politics
BALTIMORE, Md. (WUSA) -- Embattled Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler declined to comment on a Washington Post report that the whistleblowing state trooper who called Gansler reckless for his use of a state vehicle and police driver, was himself under investigation for allegedly inappropriate moonlighting.
Gansler said his office was not the source of information that sparked the investigation into Lt. Charles Ardolini and at least two another troopers now accused of using a state vehicle and firearms on executive protection jobs in DC and Virginia.
The investigation began three days after a memo outlining Ardolini's complaints about Gansler were made public.
"Obviously, it didn't come from my campaign," Gansler said.
