Ohio Audit Shows No Conflicts at JobsOhio

Updated: Thursday, November 21 2013, 09:39 AM EST
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's state auditor has scolded Gov. John Kasich's signature job-creation effort for sloppy handling of ethics and conflict-of-interest procedures in its first year, but says no business conflicts exist among its executives.
  
A compliance audit released Thursday by Republican Auditor Dave Yost followed a high-profile fight for access to JobsOhio's private books. The review did not assess the office's fiscal health, but slapped the office for several instances where it lacked or didn't follow internal procedures.
  
JobsOhio says all the issues have since been addressed.
  
Yost, a former prosecutor, subpoenaed JobsOhio's private books for the review. That was criticized by Kasich and fellow Republicans in the Legislature.
  
JobsOhio complied under protest in March. Lawmakers also have changed state law to shield future private spending from the state audit process.
