Mayor: potential fraud in spending of COVID relief funds

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut mayor has asked for a forensic investigation into the city's spending of federal pandemic relief money after coming across issues she says make her suspect fraud. West Haven Mayor Nancy Rossi, who is also a certified public accountant, said in a video posted on the city's YouTube page that she came across several large expenditures that might be fraudulent. An FBI spokesperson says agents visited City Hall on Friday but would not confirm whether an investigation was underway. The state Office of Policy and Management says West Haven's share of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act has been more than $1.15 million so far.
