St Tammany DA Update – 8/29/14

Audit of St. Tammany DA’s office underway, Legislative Auditor says

By Heather Nolan, | The Times-Picayune

Legislative auditor Daryl Purpera said his office has begun an investigative audit of St. Tammany Parish District Attorney Walter Reed’s office — something Parish President Pat Brister and Reed requested earlier this month. Purpera did not provide a timetable for when the audit might be complete.

On Aug. 4, Brister and Reed both sent Purpera letters asking for an audit of the office. The requests came as federal investigators examine Reed’s campaign spending and his relationship with St. Tammany Parish Hospital.

Brister said Reed’s office requested additional funds from parish government in recent years and said, “the public has a right to know that their tax dollars are being used in ethical, productive and efficient ways.”

Reed said he was requesting the audit following “allegations of improper expenditures” by the news media.
