BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Sen. Kent Conrad says his official papers will be digitized and available to the public after he leaves the Senate this year.
Conrad on Tuesday donated his papers to George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
The university is setting up a partnership with the State Historical Society of North Dakota to make them available to the public.
Conrad says the papers will be digitized and searchable on the Internet.
He calls them a “treasure trove” of history on everything from budget negotiations to the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton.
Conrad says nothing is being left out. He says papers detailing allegations that he got favorable loans from the Countrywide mortgage company will be included.
The Senate Ethics Committee concluded Conrad didn't get favorable treatment.
