Description

This 11-month investigation linked the mayor, Rick Filippi, to a series of deals for land near the International Paper Co. that was lying vacant. Filippi, along with a few associates, used information from the mayor's office to personally profit from the deals and in one instance offered inside information to a longtime friend and campaign financier, Rolf Patberg.
