More of Conrad’s dirty laundry?


The student newspaper at the University of Montana, the Kaimin, has an editorial that seems to implicate (though not clearly), Montana’s junior senator in a conflict of interest case involving the University of Montana and the Inland Northwest Space Alliance, a provate coorporation that was spun off from U-M.  The situation involved a former research administrator at U-M, T. Lloyd Chestnut, and his involvement in the startup and leadership of the INSA.  Chestnut has recently resigned from his most recent job at the University of North Texas due to a conflict-of-interest claim involving that school.  The editor of the Kaiman argues that the so-called “investigation” was botched and that a $100,000 a year job at INSA held by Chestnut’s wife is at least worthy of study.
