The attorney general is investigating allegations of financial wrongdoing at the state Veterans’ Home. Commandant Earle Hollings resigned Wednesday and left his $90,000 a year post immediately. He has held his post at the state-owned 169-bed nursing home for veterans for five years.
Attorney General William Sorrell says his office began its probe a week ago and is looking to see how broad and deep the problem is. A federal audit of expense reports found a number of disallowed reimbursements, including payment for alcohol and parking violations as well as excessive totals for meals.
