Ohio Auditor Seeks Ethics Probe Of Franklin County Auditor

WCBE Files

The State Auditor's office is asking the Ohio Ethics Commission to investigate Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo. The office is raising questions about a contract between Mingo and his former chief of staff, Jerzell Pierre-Louis. The six-figure consulting contract was signed after Mingo fired her for what he says was improper behavior. Pierre-Louis says she was unfairly dismissed because she questioned Mingo about rumors that he had an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate. Mingo denies that allegation.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
