2 Amtrak Workers May Face Charges

Two Amtrak workers may face criminal charges in connection with the acceptance of gifts from a construction contractor who received a $58 million contract.

The gifts involved included three trips to Philadelphia, and drinks and entertainment at a strip club for a management official, and clothing and a furnace for his church for an inspector, according to a memo written earlier this year by Amtrak’s Office of Inspector General.

The two workers have since been fired. Officials have refused to release records relating to the case, saying it remains under investigation.
