Former Austin budget director thinks audit is needed, sentence handed down in Crystal City bribery/fraud case, Bonnen joins house speaker race


A study of all of the work done by Austin’s Office of the City Auditor over the last four years found no audit of more than a single department and none done primarily to find cost savings, Austin’s former budget director said Monday.

The last three elected officials involved in a fraud and bribery scheme that drained more than $3 million from the general fund and gutted the leadership of Crystal City have been sentenced to federal prison.

The election for speaker of the Texas House is more than two months away, but Dennis Bonnen has established himself as the favorite among the seven announced candidates.
