Oregon Legislative Audits Panel Reviews DHS Spending Practices
State Representative Jerry Krummel (R-Wilsonville), the Committee Co-Chair, said the report "raises serious questions about whether DHS has been engaging in an expensive shell game involving millions of tax dollars."
Earlier this month, the Secretary of State's Audits Division found that nearly $90 million had been moved from one account to another potentially violating state law and the Oregon Constitution. The audit also noted $27 million in federal Medicaid funds may have been mismanaged.
Kudos to Rep Krummel for looking into this but I'm just not hopeful that any heads will roll. It becomes clearer everyday that government doesn't believe that the laws apply to them.
You have to tax property equally? We'll just invent something called abatements for people we like! Evironmental laws apply to Portland? Not if we sue! Enforce our immigration laws? La-la-la-la, we're not listening...
