Find out which audit Crit Luallen says was most 'troubling' and her opinion of next year's elections

09/29/2010 07:30 PM

State Auditor Crit Luallen spoke with Pure Politics about the most “troubling” audit she has conducted in the last seven years.

She also said her office’s review of the $12 million contract with prison food company Aramark Correctional Services will be completed “very soon.” Lawmakers have been awaiting that assessment since the company’s food was cited as a potential cause of a riot at Northpoint Training Center in Boyle County in August 2009.

Luallen, a Democrat, has spent the last seven years as state auditor of public accounts. She is term-limited from running again in 2011, so while she was in studio for an interview for Pure Politics, I asked her about her political future. And as a former secretary of the cabinet for Democratic Gov. Paul Patton, I got her take on why the most recent governors have struggled to work with the General Assembly.
