Senate Leader Asks for Audit of Bullock Admin. After Credible Corruption Accusations Surface

-

In the wake of numerous allegations of potential fraud, cover-up, and cronyism against Governor Steve Bullock, the Montana State Senate Majority Leader, Fred Thomas, has asked the Legislative Audit Committee of the state legislature to investigate whether or not Bullock is guilty of “fraud and intimidation.”

The recommendation for an investigation from Thomas began with a reference to the July 8 article by Wendie Frederickson, in which the former audit reviewer for the Department of Health and Human Services alleged that there was an improper use of public money and improper oversight into the expenditures. Courageously, Frederickson detailed how when she discovered improper and possibly fraudulent payments being made to the Ft. Belknap Indian Reservation, a strong political ally of the governor. When she tried to ‘blow the whistle’ on the misuse of state funds, Frederickson was reportedly threatened with a lawsuit and fired from her job.

Additionally, in 2016, the audit review chief of the Department of Health and Human Services filed a lawsuit against the department for refusing to violate public policy. Thomas also references a journalist with the Independent Record in 2016 who reported that numeorus auditors in the department were stonewalled and inhibited by Governor Bullock’s administration from doing their job and were intimidated when asking questions about suspect medicaid payments.

Thomas goes on to request that every department within Bullock’s administration be carefully audited in order ot find the pervasive fraud that has been suspected, reported, and covered-up over his time as Montana’s governor.
