Summary:

The Washington Post used FOIA to obtain records from the U.S. Parole Commission, which showed that after the 2007 resignation of a commissioner, her husband requested copies of certain correspondence from the commission chairman. Late in 2008, the Washington Post and the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General each received anonymous packages of documents in the mail, containing copies of correspondence from the commission chairman in which he urged local lawmakers to support better roads that could benefit his family's real-estate holdings.
