Lobbyist Random Audits

Here is more news about random audits of lobbyists, this time from West Virginia. 

Lobbyists’ spending disclosure reports from recent legislative sessions had only minor omissions on a handful of reports, the state Ethics Commission was told Thursday.

 Under state ethics law, the commission randomly selects 30 lobbyists each year and has an independent auditor review their reports, which disclose spending on public officials, for errors and omissions.

 The latest round of audits covered reports filed for September 2006 through August 2008, and found omissions on only five reports, said Lucy Suchy of the commission.
