Audit gives good rating to Mo. secretary of state
Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich has given an "excellent" rating to the office of former Secretary of State Robin Carnahan.
Carnahan's term ended in January, and the state auditor routinely reviews offices when executives leave.
Schweich's report found no problems with the office's oversight of significant financial functions, no legal violations and nothing lacking in its management procedures. The "excellent" rating is the highest available on Schweich's four-level assessment chart.
Schweich is a Republican and Carnahan is a Democrat. She did not seek re-election last year and was succeeded by Democratic Secretary of State Jason Kander.
