State Deputy Attorney General Thomas Kimmett has filed a whistle-blower lawsuit against Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett and other state officials, claiming he was denied a promotion because he reported what he considered an illegal practice by the AG office and the state Department of Revenue.
Kimmett objected to the state’s plan to collect delinquent taxes through private agencies, which charge commissions of up to 40% of the taxes due.
“The private collection agency, chosen without any bidding process by the attorney general’s office, would then collect a fat commission after having done little or nothing to earn it,” Kimmett charged.
While some collection agencies might quibble with Kimmett’s characterization of their work, the issue of retaliation is a separate matter. Kimmett seeks more than $1 million in damages.
Corbett spokesman Kevin Harley dismissed the filing as “a frivolous lawsuit by a disgruntled employee.”
