Total Loss $900,527 In Hodge Case SPRINGFIELD. — State Audi- j tor Lloyd Morey today issued a ! preliminary report giving the i extent of funds improperly dis-! bursed from appropriations ofj {the auditor of public accounts by 1 | the former state auditor, based | | on the audit by independent ac-; i countants now in progress. The ; i report sets the total unaccounted j for loss at $900.527. This is contrasted with the estimated loss ! of 5637,054, on which indictments I were returned against the form- j er auditor by the Sangamon ! County grand jury. ; Soon after the discovery of i i fraudulent loss in the auditor's I office, the Budgetary Commis' sion directed that a complete ! audit be made of the accounts i of the former auditor during his | entire period of incumbency. ' This audit is being, earned out > by Peal, Marwick, Mitchell & ' Co., certified public accountants. { Fraudulent withdrawals from \ the general funds of the state under appropriations to the auditor's office totaled $882,722. Fraudulent withdrawals from the trust (unclaimed deposits) fund totaled 5546,685, of which $528,- j 880 was redeposited to the credit j of this fund, leaving a net unac- i counted for difference of $17,805. ! Dr. Morey explained that these j combined figures make up the j total of $900,527, now determin- i ed to be a more accurate figure ! of loss. Even this amount, Morey stated, cannot be considered as final i or complete since there are still j matters in the audit requiring i further investigation and many i result in an increase in the total amount of loss.
