More on the state audit of Attorney General Chris Koster's office from his likely general election opponent Ed Martin.
The audit released Wednesday by Tom Schweich and the State Auditor’s office is further evidence that Chris Koster has been using the Attorney General’s office to benefit his campaign checkbook.
Ed Martin, Republican candidate for Attorney General issued the following statement:
“The audit shows that Koster broke the law by controlling contingency fee contracts, which the law specifically forbids. Tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions are tied directly to those contingency fee contracts in what appears to be a “pay-to-play” scheme. This sort of mismanagement and “pay-to-play” scheming is unacceptable from the Attorney General’s office.”
