Ex-WMATA exec now lobbying his former co-workers

Radio Metro Connection — March 25, 2011

A private email shows a well-connected insider within D.C.’s transportation community trying to use his influence to secure a WMATA contract worth more than half a billion dollars.

This story was produced for WAMU News. It is presented here as it originally aired on Metro Connection,WAMU’s weekly news magazine program covering the D.C. region.

UPDATE: Shortly after this story aired, the WMATA Board of Directors postponed a scheduled hearing on MV Transportation’s contract extension. Several weeks later, it approved the two-year extension unanimously. No formal investigation into Emeka Moneme’s role in this process has ever been conducted.
