    Next time we talk about all the liberals and democrats wasting taxpayer money, remember that the state auditor-- responsible for finding and eliminating waste-- is a democrat! Go Beth Wood! PS... Her opponent in the election was none other than Wake County School Board member Debra Goldman....

    Agree with Nancy. I'm disappointed though to still hear nothing about firings without benefits at DHHS after the overtime "earned" by the CIO and everyone who conspired with her to hide it. Then let's see exactly who signed those contracts for the Fraud and Abuse Detection system and get rid of them. Then you can go after Gossip Girl and Cell Phone Boy.

    hondaboys- $1500 a month to rent a house thur Section 8. Should someone not look at this. This is why they are not looking for a Job. Free housing, food, phone, health care, would you?

    Beth Wood does incredible work and glad she was reelected - I voted for her because of her past work, even though NOTHING was done with the results prior.

    According to some of the articles I've read and seen on newscasts recently. I would agree to trippling the budget for the office of state auditor. Kudos to that lady she takes her job seriously. I bet if taxpayers paid her on commission we'd see a lot more agencies squirming.

    In reality this state needs to better track all expenses.How can the spending issues go on for years if they are being audited? You keep hearing of the issues, but not of any solutions that have been implemented.No wonder this state doesn't have any money.............

    I am so glad they are checking into all the waste in the state.
    I wish they would look into the section 8 program. I think it's a waste to pay $1,500.00 a month to rent a house for a family. There should be a $600.00 limit.
