Perry: Top official resigning over no-bid contract | The Star Telegram

AUSTIN, TEXAS

The widening fallout over $110 million in no-bid state contracts awarded to an Austin tech company forced the resignation of a second top state official Friday, this time at the request of Republican Gov. Rick Perry, as criminal prosecutors prepare for a likely investigation into the taxpayer-funded deal.

Texas Health and Human Services Commission Inspector General Doug Wilson submitted his resignation after the governor expressed a loss of confidence, Perry spokeswoman Lucy Nashed said. Wilson’s office is in charge of preventing waste and abuse within Texas’ massive health agency.
