The Charter School Petty Cash Audit You Will Never See
Delaware State Auditor Tom Wagner has a lot of explaining to do. And possibly Governor Markell as well!
Things are getting a bit clearer now. On the Kavips blog, Delaware State Representative Kim Williams wrote a comment on Kavips take on the Kathleen Davies situation playing out at the Delaware Auditor of Accounts office. She wrote about how she contacted the auditor’s office last September regarding some concerns she had with a Delaware charter school’s petty cash activity on Delaware Online Checkbook. The report was near completion prior to Kathleen Davie’s abrupt “leave of absence”. Williams even had a comment she approved that would have appeared in the petty cash audit inspection.
Williams emailed Delaware State Auditor Tom Wagner to find out the status of it following Davies’ leave. Wagner told her he stopped the audit and issued letters to all the charter schools instead. Really Wagner? I know which school Williams found on the petty cash situation. When the Charter School of Wilmington wrote in their board minutes that the auditors were there to review their petty cash accounts, I knew something was up. So I checked all the charter schools petty cash activity. Some of them were quite egregious compared to what they are allowed to have in those accounts. But I figured I would wait to see the report before I wrote about it. In other board minutes, CSW board members asked where the audit was and they were going to contact the auditor to find out. I find it very interesting they chose to write about this one particular audit, not once, but twice.
So now we have an elected official voluntarily choosing to cover up information. This makes the very bizarre action against Davies’ look even more suspicious. Who knows what other activity is being “stopped” by Tom Wagner. Lord only knows how much else she found. We also have the woman who was in charge of the Office of Management and Budget involved in this scandal as well. Ann Visalli reported to one man, and one man only… Delaware Governor Jack A. Markell. We have an obvious set-up against Davies with a lot of BIG Delaware power figures involved. I hope her attorney eats them up!
Hey… Tom Wagner… where is the audit on Delaware Met? Where is the audit from the tip I submitted about Academy of Dover and Newark Charter School? What other audits are you cancelling? Why do you keep ignoring emails from The Charter School Petty Cash Audit You Will Never See – Exceptional Delaware:
