BOARDMAN — Oregon’s government ethics commission and Department of Justice each are scrutinizing an unusual transaction in Morrow County in which a nonprofit organization sold part of its operation to local political leaders and some of the nonprofit’s own board members.

The nonprofit, Inland Development Corp., provides fiber-optic internet connections for local government offices and health care agencies. It also served businesses in the county, including Amazon, which has spent more than $8 billion dollars building large data centers in the remote community along the Columbia River.
