ATLANTA -- A local professor has created an eye-opening list detailing what he calls 30-years of corruption involving contracts at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The list was prepared for watchdog group Common Cause. The organization is once again asking political candidates in Atlanta to set a $250 cap on campaign contributions from vendors, even though a similar plea in 2009 received very little support.
Lucrative contracts at the airport are up for renewal, so the group asked a Kennesaw State University professor to compile the list.
"The 30-year history is horrific in its effect on city government, on the confidence that Georgians have in Atlanta city government." professor Kerwin Swint told Channel 2’s Richard Belcher. Swint is a Common Cause board member and political science professor.
