Justice Dept. gives OLCC pass on whiskey scandal

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon


OPB reports that the Oregon Justice Department will not be pressing charges on OLCC managers in the expensive whiskey scandal involving OLCC executives allegedly keeping rare shipments to themselves or cherished clients.

The Justice Department felt it could not make a case because all six OLCC managers at the center of the investigation refused to be interviewed.   Also a lack of documentation meant that the purchases could not be discovered.  Consider this, when a liquor store cannot produce proper documentation they can go out of business — when the OLCC does it you can stay in business.
