Republicans continue pressing Frank Mautino for campaign spending answers

Posted by wlpo on May 6, 2016

A group of Republican lawmakers are again calling on Democrat Auditor General Frank Mautino to answer questions about campaign spending during his time representing the Illinois Valley.

Nearly 20 lawmakers signed off on a letter to Mautino wanting answers to reports that he spent thousands of dollars for gas, auto repairs and loan repayments to Spring Valley businesses before closing out his campaign fund for state representative.

Republican Grant Wehrli of Naperville led a press conference yesterday demanding Mautino end his silence. Wehrli says it’s hard to trust Mautino handling the state’s audits if he can’t answer questions surrounding his own spending.

Mautino has hired a public relations firm to handle his responses which to this point have been that Mautino continues to work with advisers to address the issues and questions. The state board of elections will have a hearing later this month about the Mautino spending controversy.
