United Airlines’ asbestos house of cards – OSHA falsely claims OIG investigated them

Marty Watters, Investigative Reporter

Kimberly Locey, Director of Administrative Programs, OSHA

In the latest chapter of United Airlines' asbestos house of cards, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is now falsely claiming that an investigation of corruption at OSHA's North Chicago office has been completed by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) in Chicago.

In her attempt to whitewash OSHA's complicity in the criminal cover-up of United's illegal asbestos removal and dumping, OSHA Director Kimberly Locey has made the false claim that the OIG in Chicago has done an investigation.

United Airlines’ asbestos cover-up: OSHA Director commits perjury

Well that was news to James Vanderberg, Special Agent in Charge of the OIG in Chicago, who knew nothing about this alleged investigation.

What Ms. Locey apparently did not know when drafting this letter is that I have been in communication with Special Agent Vanderberg and that I can unequivocally state that at no time did the OIG in Chicago investigate this case of public corruption at OSHA.

Oops! What now, Kim?

Well, now Ms. Locey wants to play hide and seek. Locey refuses to return phone calls from me and the person who made the latest allegations of systemic corruption at the North Chicago office of OSHA.

No surprise there.

However, I am a little surprised that Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, Loren Sweatt, has not taken the opportunity afforded to her to get out in front of this scandal. She is also not returning phone calls.

As for the OIG, James Vanderberg, call me. It's high time that you really do that investigation that OSHA director Locey falsely claims you have already done

What are you waiting for?
