LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Auditors say the former director and vice president of the Arkansas Lottery each spent nearly a quarter of their working days last year on personal trips to their home states.
Legislative auditors said Thursday that records were unclear on whether proper leave time was recorded for former Director Ernie Passailaigue and former Vice President for Gaming David Barden. The two resigned this year after complaints about the games' management.
The audit said Passailaigue was on non-business travel to South Carolina, where he maintains a residence, for 27 percent of his working days. Auditors said that Barden spent 21 percent of his working days on non-business travel to South Carolina or Maine, where he maintains residences.
The audit was detailed to a legislative panel.
