Pilot-Flying J Gas Stations Target of Federal Investigation
This week the FBI and IRS raided the headquarters of one of the country's largest private employers: Pilot Flying J. The chain operates more than 600 gas stations and convenience stores in 43 states. It's owned by billionaire Jimmy Haslam. Haslam also owns the Cleveland Browns and his brother is Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, who owns shares in the company. The company is accused of skimming money it promised to commercial customers through fuel rebates. WUOT's Brandon Hollingsworth filed this report for NPR's All Things Considered.
