MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WHTM) -

The CEO of the Pennsylvania Turnpike has ordered a review of contracts in the wake of criminal charges against former officials, employees and vendors.

CEO Mark Compton said Monday that the review will include every professional-services contract cited by the state attorney general's office and contracts awarded during the timeframe of the investigation that currently remain active.

The attorney general's office last week announced charges against former Senate leader Robert Mellow and three former Turnpike officials in a "pay to play" case involving the toll highway system.

Charges were also filed against former Turnpike commissioner Mitchell Rubin, former Turnpike CEO Joseph Brimmeier, former Turnpike COO George Hatalowich, two former Turnpike employees, and two Turnpike vendors.

The allegations include bribery, bid-rigging, theft and conflict of interest.
