Description

A spreadsheet and some sharp eyes helped Todd B. Bates and Paul D'Ambrosio of the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press nail a story about a New Jersey State Senate co-president who double-billed a township for work he did on a legal project. John O. Bennett III also serves as Marlboro's full-time attorney but his contract permits him to bill the township for special projects. A CPA that reviewed the records for the Press said the double billing didn't appear accidental: "My professional opinion is that it is a low probability that it is a mistake."
