State Auditor, Gubernatorial Candidate Foley Says HHS Audit not Politically Motivated

LINCOLN - State Auditor Mike Foley brushed aside suggestions that his latest harshly critical audit of the Department of Health and Human Services has been released to bolster his candidacy for governor.  Foley is one of five Republicans in the race to succeed Governor Dave Heineman, who cannot run due to term limits.  The audit accuses the HHS of mishandling hundreds of thousands of dollars meant for vulnerable Nebraskans.
