State Auditor General Appalled At Results Of Self-Audit

leave a comment »

(HARRISBURG) – Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner today released findings from a recent review he conducted of his own personal finances. In doing so, Wagner issued himself a scathing rebuke for a range of concerns including pricey health club memberships and the amount of money he has spent this year on Christmas gifts.

“I can’t believe it,” Wagner said, in a self-reprimanding tone. “I don’t know what the hell I was thinking.”

The auditor general said he had not realized until this audit that he was spending $165 per month for a gym membership. “I mean sure, I have this kick-ass body to show for it, but that’s still too much money.”

In a written report, Wagner urged himself to implement several corrective actions. They include developing and implementing standard operating procedures for reviewing purchases and enhancing vigilance over the use of his checkbook.

Wagner vowed to take his own recommendations, and to perform a follow-up audit of himself in six months.
