Is there a Growing Credit Card Scandal at Metro?
As Metro makes the rounds to rationalize yet more fare hikes, a Metro source tells Unsuck DC Metro that Assistant General Manager of Planning and Joint Development, Nat Bottigheimer, and former Director of Real Estate, Steve Goldin, were both admonished for procurement irregularities involving the misuse of Metro credit cards.
Goldin, who reported to Bottigheimer, quietly resigned, and Bottigheimer was suspended for some time, the source said.
"There are other scandals with procurement growing, big ones," said the source.
Another source who was not familiar with this particular case said "there are too many people walking around here with credit cards. They are flooding the system with purchases, and there aren't inspectors who come out and check the claims against the items in stock."
