IDOT Official Accused of Misconduct over NASCAR Tickets


A former top official with the State Department of Transportation in Springfield is the subject of new allegations of misconduct. That report from the Office of the Executive Inspector General accuses Mike Stout of improperly obtaining NASCAR race passes from a department vendor and using them to take friends to the races. Under the vendor’s contract with the state, Stout had the authority to request the passes for use as part of official state responsibilities, but the report found that he instead gave the passes to non-employees with no official connection to the department, and later lied to investigators about the practice. Stout is no longer with I-DOT… he left the department late last year amid other allegations of misuse of state resources.
