The Navajo tribal controller's unauthorized COVID rapid testing contract resulted in  Navajos federal virus relief funds to be spent on a British sports car and  penthouse.

Former Navajo controller Pearline Kirk  received an annual salary of $225,000, according to new charges filed by the Navajo Nation.

The charges involve an unauthorized contract to Agile Technologies, a company conducting unauthorized and reckless types of COVID-19 rapid testing on Navajos.

The luxury spending was during the same time that food banks, and Dine' volunteers raised their own funds and carried water and food to desperate Dine', as the coronavirus spread through the Navajo Nation in 2020.
