State Representative Dwight Kay ( R- Glen Carbon) announced today the filing of House Joint Resolution 158, a measure to remove Auditor General Frank Mautino from office. The resolution comes as Mautino is under investigation for irregular campaign spending during his time as a state representative.

In a letter sent last month, over 20 other House and Senate Republican lawmakers urged Mautino to take an unpaid leave of absence until federal and state investigations conclude, noting that the Auditor General has yet to provide documentation clarifying his campaign expenditures. Mautino has not responded to the letter or to repeated calls to answer official legislative inquiries.
