The government watchdog that recently chided the State Department for losing track of billions of dollars in contracts has had its own troubles with procurement mismanagement.
Congress and the State Department's inspector general are examining allegations that senior officials working under Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton may have suppressed investigations into suspected criminal activity among U.S. diplomats abroad — including the alleged solicitation of prostitutes by an ambassador in Europe.
"After receiving preliminary findings DOS OIG completed the investigation and referred it to the Department of Justice for possible prosecution," spokesman Doug Welty wrote in an email to The Washington Times.
Mr. Welty said the State Department inspector general took over the case because of time and resource limitations at the Interior Department's inspector general, but declined to provide more specific information what sorts of administrative actions were taken against inspector general employees or contractors.
