Description

The Herald-Leader's nine-part series looks at how taxpayers lose to local politics. The six-month investigation found that audits and recent scandals reflect only part of the problem and that larger problems included the hiring of relatives by officeholders for county jobs, questionable contracts, wasteful spending, potential conflicts of interest, inequities in which roads are paved and a system of local government that seems tailored to the needs of officials rather than taxpayers.
