DEA informant illegally paid
WASHINGTON- The Drug Enforcement Administration is said to have illegally paid an Amtrak secretary $850-thousand to obtain confidential information about train passengers.
The Associated Press says the money was paid out over a 20-year period and that the information could have been obtained for free legally through a law enforcement network.
The secretary was allowed to retire instead of face administrative discipline after it was learned the employee "regularly" sold private passenger information since 1995 and without Amtrak's knowing or approval.
