Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
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.
