Sweet little scoop from WTOP’s Mark Segraves: The D.C. Council has hired William McLucas, former head of enforcement for the federal Securities and Exchange Commission, to investigate the $40 million tax scam.

Writes Segraves,

The investigation, which will be announced Tuesday, signals the D.C. Council’s desire to take control of the worst fraud case in the District’s history.

McLucas was head of the forensic audit of Enron and alerted the board of directors of the massive fraud that was occurring at the company.
