CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - West Virginia Sen. Eric Tarr, R-Putnam, is asking the U.S. Office of Inspector General to investigate a money transfer by Gov. Jim Justice.
In a letter dated Monday, March 20, Tarr asks them to look into the transfer of more than $28 million of unused COVID relief money to a discretionary account.
Tarr, who is the Senate Finance Committee chairman, wants to know if Justice violated any federal law by doing so.
Ten million dollars from the account in question was later donated to help build a baseball stadium for Marshall University.
