Nothing unexpected emerged when State Auditor Claire McCaskill released the state audit of the license bureau privatization today.
The Democrats will find it showed unethical, if not criminal activity, by Republicans. The Republicans will claim it is nothing Democrats haven't done before or that the problems are being exaggerated.
On the same day that the audit was being released, Department of Revenue Director Trish Vincent issued a news release revealing how smoothly the transition from state-operated to privately-operated license fee bureaus went.
Interestingly enough, a link to Ms. Vincent's news release is placed prominently on the Missouri State Government website homepage, while there is no mention of the state audit.
