JobsOhio Audit Scolds Governor, Finds No Business Conflicts
Ohio’s state auditor has scolded Gov. John Kasich’s signature job-creation effort for sloppy handling of ethics and conflict-of-interest procedures in its first year, but says no business conflicts exist among its executives.
A compliance audit released Thursday by Republican Auditor Dave Yost followed a high-profile fight for access to JobsOhio’s private books. The review did not assess the office’s fiscal health, but slapped the office for several instances where it lacked or didn’t follow internal procedures.
Yost, a former prosecutor, subpoenaed JobsOhio’s private books for the review. The move was criticized by Kasich and fellow Republicans in the Legislature.
JobsOhio complied under protest in March. Lawmakers also have changed state law to shield future private spending from the state audit process.
