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.
