State auditors investigate transport to polls

November 8, 2012

The Mississippi Office of the State Auditor is investigating the Starkville Housing Authority to determine whether the local organization's use of a van to transport voters to polling places Tuesday was improper.
MOSA Investigative Division Deputy Director Earl Smith said the agency is analyzing the matter but has not determined its legality.
"We're looking into it. We don't know know whether it's illegal or not," Smith said. "I got a call that people were being transported to polling places in the Housing Authority van. We're looking to make sure that's OK."
Smith would not comment on a report that State Auditor spokesperson Lisa Shoemaker said the act was illegal. Calls to Shoemaker have not been returned.
