In a continuing investigation, Seattle's KING-TV has produced more than 15 stories investigating wasteful spending of the area's ferry system. By using public records requests, reporters found several employees assigned to "special projects" that allowed them to rake in thousands of dollars to "drive to and from work." They also revealed a "lack of accountability" regarding ferry safety and "unusable equipment."
