Statement on Illinois Auditor General Failing to Comply with State Board of Elections Deadline

Illinois State Representative Sara Wojcicki Jimenez (R-Leland Grove) released the following statement on Auditor General Frank Mautino again refusing to comply with the State Board of Elections:

“Yesterday, Auditor General Frank Mautino missed another deadline to issue a report to the State Board of Elections to answer questions relating to expenditures made by his campaign committee over a number of years. If Auditor General Mautino continues to ignore the State Board of Elections’ request for this information, it is my belief that he should resign as Auditor General. Illinois faces enormous financial challenges and a strong fiscal watchdog is needed now more than ever. If this cloud continues to hang over Auditor General Mautino, it will only cast doubt over his ability to effectively audit the finances of the State of Illinois. It is my hope that he clears this up immediately."
