COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio state auditor has issued a subpoena seeking the financial records for Gov. John Kasich's (KAY'-sik's) private nonprofit job-creation entity.
Auditor Dave Yost tells The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/WVJV0h ) in an article Thursday that the subpoena follows several months of negotiations between his office and JobsOhio's chief financial officer.
Yost, a fellow Republican, asserts that his office has the legal authority to review the private entity's finances and tells the newspaper JobsOhio is not cooperating.
A Kasich spokesman said the administration supports Yost auditing taxpayer money going to JobsOhio, but his authority regarding its private funds is less clear.
Kasich created JobsOhio in 2011 to speed up Ohio's existing economic development efforts. The board has raised continual privacy concerns and is the subject of a lawsuit questioning its constitutionality.
