Tim Hoegemeyer, general counsel for the auditor's office, responded through e-mail that the auditor is "looking at the possibility of conducting such an audit and any decision one way or another will have to take into account our resources and current priorities."
Timothy J. Hoegemeyer, counsel for the auditors office, on Thursday wrote back saying the investigation, which originated with a hotline tip, and subsequent report were done in accordance with state law, and therefore we will not cease and desist the publication of this report.
"If the subject of the opinion or the Committee did not like what the Commission said in its advisory opinion they could simply 'modify, or overrule' its contents," said Tim Hoegemeyer, General Counsel to the State Auditor.
"Then the Committee could presumably draft their own advisory opinion and the Ethics Commission must publish the Committee's advisory opinion as their own [GS § 120-104(f)].
The result is that legislators could escape independent oversight and scrutiny all under the cover of the State Ethics Act," concluded Hoegemeyer.
