WILMINGTON, Del. — A Delaware newspaper says officials with an in-state company were the counter parties to an alleged kickback scheme involving an Amtrak contracting official.

The News Journal cites court documents and its own sources saying that officials from First State Manufacturing, a supplier of Amtrak seat cushions and carpeting, paid as much as $20,000 to Timothy Miller, who was a contract administrator. Miller recently pleaded guilty to one count of bribery in Federal court over the case.

The seat manufacturer had as much as $7.6 million in contracts with Amtrak.
