Ind. Gov't. - State Board of Accounts investigating Evansville City Councilwoman

Updating these ILB posts from mid-May, Jessica Schmidt of WFIE14, Evansville, reported yesterday:

The Indiana State board of Accounts tells 14 News the secret recording of an audit exit conference by Evansville City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley is now being investigated by Indiana State Police.

Indiana State Police's policy is they don't release details or names of an ongoing investigation until charges have been filed, but officials with the State Board of Accounts tell us there is an investigation.

The now former council vice president secretly recorded the closed door meeting, and then leaked it online.

Brinkerhoff-Riley remains on council, but resigned from the VP position.

The story links to a number of earlier, related WFIE stories.
