IRS: hankypanky in contract awarding
Gregory Roseman, a Deputy Director n the IRS, took the 5th yesterday to avoid answering questions about his involvement in awarding $500 million in contracts in 2012 to a company created by a close friend in 2011.
Over 350 emails between Roseman and his friend who created this company (Stone Castle) in 2011 reveal that Roseman assisted his friend to get the contracts. There was no arm's length distance between the contractor and Roseman. It is alleged that Stone Castle's owner committed fraud to obtain the contracts.
The IRS has reassigned Mr. Roseman to another position. If it can be proven that Roseman knew that the fraud existed, would he not be an accessory to the fraud?
