State official: Audit probe needed

Le Flore County officials have the power to call for a state investigative audit to follow up the troubling findings of a state audit report, but if they do not do so on their own, county residents can force the issue.

State Auditor Gary Jones says if Le Flore County residents want to make sure that all the facts come out in a spending scandal unearthed by a four-year “catch-up” audit, they have the option of petitioning for either an investigative audit by the State of Oklahoma, or a grand jury.

Well? Still waiting..........

Where are all the T-baggers huffing and puffing about the budget problems? Surely one of you have something to share about this? Or, is follow-up too much to ask?

The most interesting statement....
Jones told local residents that there is a simple way to instigate an investigative audit, which would trigger the visit of an FBI-trained auditor and team: the county commissioners could simply vote to ask the state auditor for one.“It only takes two commissioners to bring this about,” Jones aid.
So have any of the CC's been asked, encouraged, pressured, demanded of, to request such an audit?? Everyone afraid to go to jail maybe?
