Firm that missed Bell scandals up for review
BELL, Calif. (KABC) -- An auditing firm that missed repeated fraud and mismanagement in the city of Bell is getting its own review.
The firm Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. has hired an independent accounting company to review its procedures.
According to the Los Angeles Times, auditors didn't find any evidence of wrongdoing in Bell during the time when several city leaders are alleged to have been involved in corruption scandals.
A spokesman for Mayer Hoffman said examining city leaders' salaries wasn't the auditors' job. He also questioned whether they were given accurate information from the city.
Mayer Hoffman does outside audits for several California agencies.
The state controller's office is expected to release its own report on the firm by the end of the year.
