Top auditor warns legislation could lead to more corruption

The Associated Press and The Oklahoman - March 6, 2017 8:56 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma’s top auditor says legislation to allow county officials select who audits them and what type of audit is conducted could lead to more corruption.

The Oklahoman reports the measure would allow county officials choose whether the state auditor or an independent certified public accountant does their audits, similar to Oklahoma cities and schools.

But Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones says his office has uncovered embezzlements at cities and schools that received clean financial audits.
