FBI Investigating Atlanta’s $3B in Airport Vendor Contracts

Accusations are flying in Atlanta that airport concession contracts have been rigged to favor the Mayor’s campaign contributors, reports WSBTV.

The FBI has apparently contacted several of the losing bidders to interview them about the bidding process. One bidder told WSBTV, “I answered their questions that I had a feeling things went on, but I couldn’t provide hard evidence”.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed held a fundraiser just four days before the airport bidding started. $3 Billion in contracts would be awarded, some of them to the Mayor’s key contributors. Mack Wilbourn, a prominent businessman who hosted a fundraiser for Mayor Reed, had also recently hosted President Obama. Wilbourn won upward of $350M in airport contracts.
