      Feds Take Davitt McAteer's Files

      West Virginia MetroNews

      February 29, 2012

      The U.S. Government's Office of the Inspector General has seized records and files from the offices of Davitt McAteer, a vice president at Wheeling Jesuit University and outspoken coal mine accident investigator.

      McAteer, who is the former head of the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration, confirms that the federal investigators took records from his offices in Wheeling and Shepherdstown February 15th, made copies, and then returned the records.

      The Inspector General's Office conducts independent audits, investigations and inspections of federal programs.

      McAteer is the director of the National Technology Transfer Center and the Erma Ora Byrd Center for Education Technologies--two federal program at Wheeling Jesuit. The Inspector General's Office is apparently interested in how McAteer was paid for his work on UBB while also employed with those two federal programs.

      McAteer had no comment on the investigation, but he did explain that the state compensated Wheeling Jesuit for the time he spent on the UBB probe.

      MetroNews could not reach the Office of the Inspector General for comment.
