Frankfort's New Fiscal Watchdog October 10, 2016 by Staff

You know the common campaign slogan about cutting "waste, fraud and abuse"? Well, there's a new auditor in Frankfort who's been following through with that promise. State Auditor Mike Harmon released his audit of the Department of Criminal Justice Training and the Kentucky Law Enforcement Foundation Program Fund. It shows excessive and questionable spending and contracts with Eastern Kentucky University that skirted state law. KLEFPF was established to strengthen law enforcement across Kentucky by attracting top-level law enforcement to keep the Commonwealth safe. Harmon's office discovered excessive spending of more than half million dollars per year on staff to publish a quarterly magazine. Money was spent on items not permitted by the state and excessive travel costs. There's a new sheriff in town—actually he's an auditor. And his name is Mike Harmon. We've got a feeling that we'll be hearing more from him in the future.
