EVANSVILLE, Ind. - The head of Indiana's State Board of Accounts says he wants an Evansville city councilwoman prosecuted for releasing an audio recording she secretly made of a meeting with state auditors.
Democratic Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley released on Monday the recording from a March conference between city officials and auditors reviewing city finances. She says the public should know about the "failure" of Republican Mayor Lloyd Winnecke's administration to balance the city's payroll account.
State Examiner Paul Joyce tells the Evansville Courier & Press (http://bit.ly/1lUrQIJ ) that such conferences with auditors are supposed to be confidential as changes could be made before the final audit report is released.
State law says a public official found to have interfered with a state auditor must give up that position.
Brinkerhoff-Riley says she broke no laws.
