KMOX News has never reported that Dooley himself was a target of the probe.The station maintains that the FBI is looking into the way St. Louis County awards government contracts and "whether campaign money raised for the county executive's race has influenced which vendors are selected." The facts were reportedly obtained through "multiple sources with first-hand knowledge of the investigation."
Corvington was asked by KMOX: "We have been reporting that the fundraising activities for the county executive's race and how it might relate to the awarding of county contracts is the focus of an investigation. Is that wrong?"
Corvington responded:"I have no comment about that other than I have told you." Corvington then concluded the phone call.
