Play associated audio

An official report says Montgomery County's planning director tried to frustrate an investigation into his spending practices and those of his agency.

The Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission says the Montgomery County director, Rollin Stanley, didn't "fully cooperate" with information requests and gave "misleading and contradictory information."

The report was released to The Washington Post in response to a public records request. It says Stanley improperly used his government credit card, used his cell phone for personal calls, and didn't properly document his spending.

Stanley has given up his government credit card and repaid the agency for questioned expenses.
