Edelen to examine Fayette County Public Schools



FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Democratic State Auditor Adam Edelen says he will examine financial mismanagement allegations at Fayette County Public Schools.

Edelen announced the probe Wednesday, one week after finishing an audit of Jefferson County Public Schools that concluded the district's inefficient operations cost taxpayers millions of dollars each year.

The Fayette County inquiry will focus on allegations from the district's budget director that an accounting error created a $20 million deficit at the school district. District officials have denied the allegations and asked Edelen to audit the district's finances.

This will be the 17th school district Edelen has audited since he took office in 2012. Audits in two school districts - Mason and Dayton counties - led to criminal indictments of their superintendents.

Edelen is considering running for governor in 2015.
