Second, remember the big credit card scandal from last Fall, where it turned out a whole lot of county employees were abusing their credit cards privileges? You can refresh yourself here and here.
In yesterday's Googling (searching for the most recent State CAFR, in fact), I found a State Comptroller's report of the Community Services Agency, from December 2001, that uncovered mismanagement and poor controls. I don't even recall seeing this story, do you?
Going to the index page turns up hours and hours of reading fun. More on this later!
