Candidate for State Auditor Mary Connaughton issued this statement yesterday, saying if elected, she would introduce legislation to grant authority to the State Auditor to audit the Massachusetts State legislature, which apparently thinks such scrutiny is beneath them, even though they spent $60 million on their operations in 2009. We think this legislation is long overdue and if Ms. Connaughton (or any future auditor) introduces it, Voters Count will strongly urge its members to pressure legislators to support it!
