Auditor rejects GOP plea to examine lottery

Massachusetts LotteryMassachusetts Lottery: Auditor rejects GOP plea to examine lottery

The state auditor rejected a request from a Senate Republican to audit the Massachusetts Lottery.

Auditor Joe DeNucci says the lottery already gets reviewed by accounting firm KPMG and that he may conduct an audit of the lottery next year.

Senator Richard Tisei of Wakefield made the request, arguing that lawmakers need a better sense of the lottery's fiscal health.

Tisei says he's hearing contradictory messages about how much money is being taken in and how much can be raised. Money from the lottery goes to local cities and towns.

Tisei's request came after state Treasurer Tim Cahill warned Governor Patrick and legislative leaders about having reasonable expectations for the lottery when crafting the next state budget.

Yeah and Enron was "reviewed" by Arthur Anderson. DeNucci needs to be De-Hired.

In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.
