Guam - Guam Federation of Teachers President Matt Rector is asking the Attorney General's Office to conduct an investigation into Port Authority of Guam Chief Negotiator Ken Takagawa.  Rector alleges that Takagawa, who gets $20,000 a month, is dragging his feet on negotiations in order to rack up more money.

"It's a sick and corrupt cycle," said Rector of the situation.  "We're basically just funneling money into this guy's pocket, who doesn't even pay taxes on Guam.  And we have experts on Guam who can do this, so we're asking the AG to look into this."

In the meantime, Port officials say they are prohibited from speaking about any negotiations.
