INDIANAPOLIS - A 19-month investigation into ethics allegations against former state transportation official Troy Woodruff found no formal violations. But it has frustrated Inspector General David Thomas.
Thomas contends the entire investigation could have been avoided if Woodruff had simply disclosed his financial interests.
That frustration over poor disclosure ties together three public integrity cases decided this year in Indiana, and it has prompted howls of protest from Democrats.
Lawmakers say they will pursue tougher requirements for legislators. Thomas urged the Indiana Department of Transportation to implement stronger disclosure rules.
Whether those changes will happen remains to be seen.
