Auditors report on Wilcox



For your information, here's the Oct. 30 letter and report from legislative auditors (Page 7 is the relevant page) reported in the Democrat-Gazette this morning. It has details about Land Commissioner Mark Wilcox's suspect use of two state vehicles during his tenure. (Remember, his wife was in a wreck in one of them on a shopping trip and the state paid the damage, later reimbursed?) Pulaski Prosecutor Larry Jegley will review the file and determine whether criminal action is warranted.

Spending of public money for personal uses. Has that ever happened anywhere else in local or county or state government? Does reimbursement of use of public money for personal uses erase the offense? Just asking.

I do ask why city and county agencies don't get the scrutiny that legislative audit brings to state agencies.
