Leppert Tells Channel 11 He's Calling For an Investigation Into DFW Spending

DFW CEO Jeff Fegan

Wuh-oh, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport CEO Jeff Fegan. Looks like Mayor Tom wants ... an investigation! So says KTVT-Channel 11, which yesterday brought us news of DFW execs and board members' big-ticket travel, which the airport has defended with this memo. Notes the breaking-news sounder, with more details to come, Leppert, a DFW Airport board member, "tells CBS 11 Dallas citizens have an interest in the management of the airport and it could not survive without taxpayer support." --Robert Wilonsky
