Sources: Former Wallace-Bajjali employee talking to FBI; land deals under investigation
City government sources tell the Turner Report that a former Wallace-Bajjali employee has been talking to the FBI about land deals with owners of property in the tornado area that were brokered by Joplin City Councilman Mike Woolston, working for Charlie Kuehn of Four State Homes, who was working with Wallace-Bajjali, the city's former master developer.
The properties were reportedly sold at a much higher price to the Joplin Redevelopment Corporation.
Earlier, information provided by the Wallace-Bajjali employee and others led state auditors to take the rare step of issuing subpoenas to CART (Citizens Advisory Recovery Team) member, who along with former City Manager Mark Rohr were responsible for bringing Wallace-Bajjali to Joplin.
