And where will all the displaced state government employees park? Or work?

Re: “Unlike Wake County and Its Register of Deeds Office, Some Counties Stop Losses with Internal Audits

Which state statute, according to Prof. Allison, requires N.C. sheriffs and registers to audit their own offices?

NCGS 159-24 et seq, including 159-32, clearly say that's the responsibility of the county's finance officer, which makes logical sense:


Sheriffs and registers are not elected to be CPAs. And the very purpose of an outside audit, after all, is to get an objective analysis of the office's books, which no "inside audit" could ever be expected to produce. So that argument doesn't seem to hold water.

Re: “Exclusive: Wake Missed a Chance to Conduct a Detailed Audit of the Register of Deeds Office, Which Is Now Missing $600K

Kyle Schutzstaffel: The Nuisance and Disturber, sited in the same IndyWeek article youre commenting on, said Wake County has an internal auditor, as you mustve read. What is his or her job, prey tell?

I do not know the auditor personally, but maybe you do? Im just asking the question. Do you have answers? Or are you just trying to diflect attention?

If 2 people took money thats a dang shame. If 10 or 12 or 15 people did, thats a scandal -- one the countys internal auditor hisself would be hard pressed to explain, dont you think?

I cant fail to disagree less that the key here is focusing on finding out who was stealing money -- E-VER-Y-BODY, not just the low-hanging fruit. Hang em ALL high, fair and square.

The point of this artical is that the county did not do it's required job of auditing this office. Who is responsible and accountible for that? That is the big question for us poor taxpayers. Do you have any answers KSS? Somebody does!

Doesn't Wake County have a well-paid internal auditor? Was he doing his job? Did anyone check? Ever? Who audits the county auditor?

And who was in charge of the office's apparently lousy computer system?
