State Rep. Steven Long helped funnel $181,449 of our gas tax money to pave and widen a road that led to his boss' housing development on Lake Lyman Heights Road.
While Long claims the self-policing House Ethics Committee (made up of his peers and colleagues) has cleared him of "any wrong doing," SLED received documents and is "reviewing" the information.
AG Wilson and SLED need to open a criminal investigation to answer the following questions:
- Did Long knowingly use his official office to obtain an economic interest for himself and his boss by funneling gas tax funds to pave and widen a road leading to his boss' housing development?
- Did he use his office to influence a government decision in which he and his boss would obtain an economic interest?
