St. Louis city audit questions $130,000 in spending
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – An audit of the St. Louis City Recorder Of Deeds office questions $130,000 in spending.
Former recorder, Sharon Carpenter, resigned in July after violating the state’s nepotism laws by hiring her great-nephew. She ran for re-election, and won.
The city audit recommends that current recorder Jennifer Florida work with legal counsel to try to recoup the money. This includes more than $10,000 in salary for Carpenter’s nephew.
