Missouri County officials: FBI questions consulting contract

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Some Missouri county officials say FBI agents are asking about a $75,000 contract awarded to a consultant.

The Kansas City Star and St. Louis Post-Dispatch report (http://bit.ly/1HhFDF6 ) two Jackson County local legislators said they were contacted by FBI agents.

Legislator Dan Tarwater and former legislator Theresa Garza Ruiz told the papers that bureau agents were asking about consultant Brittany Burke. She previously worked as an aide to Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.

Burke and former House Speaker John Diehl also confirmed in a police report that they had an affair last year.

Burke declined to comment about questions from the FBI. Diehl did not return calls from The Associated Press or the newspapers.

Garza Ruiz says the contract was awarded based on merit, not Burke’s relationship with Diehl.
