ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The man who wants Charlie Dooley’s St. Louis County Executive seat says Dooley’s challenge to release 10 years of income tax returns is nothing more than a red herring.
Stenger wants the results of the internal police investigation into Dooley’s police chauffeurs.
“Charlie Dooley is free at any time to tell the public who the drivers where that made the improper requests into the REJIS system,” says Stenger. “He’s free at any time to tell everyone, and be transparent, who these drivers were looking up improperly.”
He adds that the investigation was completed ten days ago, but the results are being sat on by the county attorney who is under the direct guidance of the county executive.
“So we have a situation where the results of an investigation, should be released to the public immediately and they are basically being sat on,” says Stenger.
In response to income tax challenge, Dooley has released ten years of his returns. They show that he and his wife consistently earned anywhere from $182,000 to $217,000, and paid between $28,000 to $40,000 in taxes.
He says he’ll release his tax information but wants county residents to know something Dooley isn’t releasing. Namely, what his police chauffeurs were looking for when they allegedly searched random names in the REJIS criminal background system.
Stenger is in the process of compiling his information for KMOX.
