Murkowski on Bill Allen Allegations
Senator Lisa Murkowski is asking the Attorney General why the Justice Department is not prosecuting former Veco CEO, Bill Allen.
Allen is accused of repeatedly transporting an underage girl from Seattle to Anchorage for the purpose of prostitution.
In March, Attorney General Eric Holder said if there was enough evidence to justify a case against Allen, then a case would be brought.
Other reports from DOJ officials said Allen would not be prosecuted because he had been convicted and sentenced in another case.
Murkowski says there is enough evidence to pursue a case and she is not satisfied with responses from the Justice Department.
