#Team5 first brought you the story about former Westfield State President Evan Dobelle's lavish spending last year. Now this scathing report by the IG. #wcvb #westfield #dobelle
 
It was a year ago this week Team 5 Investigates first raised questions about Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle's spending on travel and entertainment. One year later, he's no longer the leader of the university. While his lawsuit against the Commissioner of Higher Education and members of the board of Trustees plays out in federal court, the state Attorney General continues her investigation.  Today the state Inspector General released a scathing review.
State Inspector General Glenn Cunha released a scathing audit into the spending of Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle on Thursday, Team 5 Investigates reports.
