Ethics Commission clean, audit finds

— OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The director of the Oklahoma Ethics Commission says an audit of the agency has found no financial irregularities.

The audit was requested by Gov. Mary Fallin following the resignation in November of longtime Ethics Commission Director Marilyn Hughes and covered the period from July 2009 through November. Such audits are considered routine when an agency head leaves.

The Oklahoman reported that Director Lee Slater told commissioners that duties regarding payments have changed so that an employee who accepts payment for various fees is not in charge of depositing the funds. The change was recommended by auditors before Slater was named director in January.

Slater said auditors found no missing funds and nothing is unaccounted for.
