Audit cites Mahoning Dems’ beer buy



Published: Fri, May 7, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m.

The Mahoning County Democratic Party “illegally” spent $146 on alcoholic beverages, according to a review of its financial records by the Ohio auditor’s office.

The party paid for the beer for last summer’s Democratic picnic from its restricted fund, something not permitted by state law.

After being told by the auditor’s office about the finding for recovery, the party wrote a check from its general fund to its restricted fund for the $146, according to the financial review.

The party is permitted to use its general fund for such purposes, said Chairman David Betras.

“We wrote the check from the wrong fund,” he said. “It was a mistake. It was nothing and it’s been corrected.”
