Secretary of State Land Lose with Cash

At a time when every dime counts, Michigan taxpayers can't count on Secretary of State Terri Land to keep track of the money branch offices take in.

That's not a partisan claim. It's the conclusion of the Michigan Auditor General.

The auditor general says that Land's procedures in the branch offices are so lax that "unauthorized or improper transactions" could occur. In other words, employees could be stealing money and Land wouldn't know it.

And the auditor general's report says that Land hasn't figured out how to charge Michigan vehicle owners the proper fees, overcharging some and undercharging others.

Land can't figure out how to run one agency of state government, and now she wants to run the whole state.
