Audit findings turned over to feds
A typical audit request by a newly-elected state official has led to a federal investigation.
Activities in the Department of Agriculture prior to 2013 are the subject of that audit, which Speaker Tim Miley, D-Harrison, and Senate President Jeff Kessler, D-Marshall, have turned over to U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin.
Miley said current Commissioner of Agriculture Walt Helmick asked for the audit shortly after taking office last year.
“To date, the audit has revealed very troubling activities and management practices by the Agriculture Department’s previous administration, including questionable accounting methods, expense reimbursements and loans administered by the agency,” Miley said in the release.
In an e-mail response, Helmick confirmed that he requested the audit, and that he supports the decision to turn over the audit findings to federal authorities.
