On August 8, the Muckraker reported that the FBI was investigating transactions between Prince William County and Quality Business Engineering (QBE), where Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland was employed as Executive Vice President. Now we have learned that Supervisor Candland and QBE have parted ways.
You read it correctly, folks. Things just got a bit more serious. The Muckraker has learned that the FBI has opened an investigation into Prince William County’s transactions with Quality Business Engineering (QBE), the local firm where Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland now holds the position of Executive Vice President.
We recently discovered that Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s political games with School Board Chair Ryan Sawyers pre-date Sawyers’s election and appear to have cost Prince William County taxpayers somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 million. The striking disclosure seems to reveal another example of Candland’s hypocrisy, selling out the taxpayer to satisfy partisan political goals
