Streator man faces tall task in calling out Auditor General Frank Mautino

Posted by wlpo on September 20, 2016

The David vs. Goliath case of Streator’s David Cooke against Auditor General Frank Mautino continues.

Cooke’s complaint regarding questionable expenses when Mautino was a state representative was found to have merit. But despite what you may think, Cooke is taking on Mautino himself in Springfield with no state investigation being done into the campaign spending.

There is a federal investigation underway into Mautino’s spending. But in Illinois, Cooke is representing himself against Mautino’s law firm which includes 525 attorneys in 25 offices across the globe.

A group of Republican lawmakers including State Senator Sue Rezin have called for Mautino to resign as the investigation into his spending continues.
