The New Connecticut Public Corruption Task Force:
Combatting Public Corruption, Fraud, and Embezzlement
Tuesday, September 8
Speaker: Christopher M. Mattei, Assistant U.S. Attorney
and Chief of the U.S. Attorney's Office's Financial Fraud
and Public Corruption Unit
Attorney Christopher Mattei will discuss the new Connecticut
Public Corruption Task Force's charge to investigate corrupt
public officials, the misuse of public funds, and related crimi-
nal activity.
The task force includes representatives from the Federal Bu-
reau of Investigation, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Internal
Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, and the
Inspector General's Offices of the United States Department
of Health and Human Services and the United States Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban Development.
The task force is focused on rooting out not only corrupt
elected officials, but also federal, state, and municipal em-
ployees who use their position for personal gain at the ex-
pense of the public good. It has already made progress in
several investigations, including the recent arrest of the for-
mer finance director of Plymouth, who allegedly embezzled
more than $800,000 from the town.
