How a Contracting Official Scammed More Than $30M
April 1, 2013
Until recently, Army Corps of Engineers program manager Kerry Khan had millions of dollars, mistresses in three states and a taste for high-end cars and liquor, according to court records.
He was, as prosecutors put it, the mastermind of the largest bid-rigging scam in the history of federal contracting.
Two summers ago, Khan got a scare — federal agents paid a visit to his opulent Alexandria, Va., home — and he considered retiring after nearly two decades in the federal government.
But he opted against quitting his job because he was worried that he would lose his accrued annual leave, according to one investigator in the case.
