MADISON, Wis. – Federal investigators have posted online the summary of their probe into a scandal-plagued Madison Social Security hearing office.
There’s not much in the brief report that Wisconsin Watchdog hasn’t previously reported.
What remains unanswered is why federal prosecutors declined to bring charges for what appears to be criminal conduct.
While the Social Security Administration’s Office of the Inspector General found violations of the law, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Western District of Wisconsin has inexplicably declined prosecution. The U.S. attorney’s office has not returned requests for comment.
The summary, posted at the OIG website, breaks down the major findings of the investigation.
