State Representative Margo McDermed and 19 other members of the General Assembly have sent a third letter to Auditor General Mautino calling on him to explain questionable campaign fund expenditures from his time as State Representative. Lawmakers are asking that Mautino answer questions raised by dubious vehicle repair and maintenance expenditures, including $214,000 to a single service station over a 10 year period. The accounting and spending irregularities from Mautino’s campaign fund were first reported on by the Better Government Association and other government watchdog groups back in January.
Rep. McDermed was one of only 10 House members who voted against former State Representative Mautino’s appointment as Auditor General last fall.
