Secretary of State To Testify Thursday

Sponsored by:

Secretary of State Kevin Shelley is scheduled to testify under oath Thursday before the Joint Legislative Audit Committee about his handling of federal election money.

The state auditor´s office reported last month that Shelley´s office mismanaged Help America Vote Act funds. The secretary also faces two state investigations and a federal probe into accusations he accepted laundered campaign contributions, and he´s been accused of illegally accepting a political donation in his state office.

Last week a state Personnel Board report accused him of creating a hostile work environment in his office and using a “spoils system” to hire political supporters.
