Cortines asks consultant to audit an audit of work of consultants

~
In yet another circus of administrative handwashing on Beaudry yesterday, Superintendent Ramon Cortines admitted to the Daily News that he asked an unpaid consultant to interpret for him an audit of District spending on consultants.

Board president Monica Garcia showed a profound lack of presidential mettle by refusing to comment on either the audit or the audit of the audit.

Why the original auditor, District Inspector General Jerry Thornton, didn't submit an audit that Cortines and Garcia could understand without the filter of a secondary auditor remains a question, as well as why a former bank CEO was needed to explain the audit's conclusions to Cortines.
