State Auditor Explains the Process of Conducting Special Investigations
DES MOINES, Iowa -- "When it comes to public funds, every public dollar spent, every asset used, every resource that`s expended does need to have a public purpose," said State Auditor Mary Mosiman. When the Auditor's Office learns about financial irregularities, it gets involved. "If that irregularity is when some person or persons are intentionally misusing public funds for personal benefit, then we switch over to investigative mode," said Mosiman.
