Description

The Indianapolis Star uncovered and disclosed facts about Rep. Sam Turpin, the chairman of the powerful Indiana House Ways and Means Committee. The stories disclosed that Turpin had secretly accepted a total of more than $40,000 in payments since 1993. The source of those payments was a major state riverboat casino contractor, American Consulting Engineers Inc. The Star reported that Turpin received these monthly payments as his "consulting retainer." (March 3, 24, April 19, 1996)
