KUSA - A company that runs thousands of red light cameras is accused of bribery in more than a dozen states, including Colorado.

The accusations are coming from the former top salesman at Redflex, Aaron Rosenberg.

In court documents, he admits to handing out gifts like meals and golf trips to local government officials around the country in hopes of scoring contracts for the red light cameras.

The documents don't specify what allegedly happened in Colorado. They do claim Redflex fired Rosenberg and two others after the Chicago Tribune began asking questions about bribes in that city.

Redflex says it wasn't aware of the wrongdoing. Rosenberg insists the company funded the bribes and encouraged them.

The Tribune reports the company is now at the center of a federal investigation over the Chicago bribery.

Denver has contracted with Redflex in the past. City officials say that's no longer the case. They would not comment on the bribery scandal.
