Leaders in Leslie County say they are working to answer those questions.

The state auditor says the county can't show how it used the one-point-one million dollars in disaster money it was given in 2006 and 2007 as required under federal law.

    Hummmm!!! seams kind of like a case in good O'L KNOTT CO., well i mean it relates to one another. Hats off to the state auditor office,these crooked county goverment offical need to be found out, tryed in court of law, and if convicted, put them in a state prison,not a federal one. The federal prison system would be to good for them. I would say when they got out of there they will be reabilatated to the fullest,and would think twice before even passing gas in public.
