More on earmarks (like the Auditor's report)

Remember the DC Auditor report that "found significant financial and management deficiencies" with the City Council earmark process?   You know, the one you read about in stories by WaPo's Tim Craig or the Examiner's Bill Myers.   The one that railed against no transparency and little accountability by earmark recipients?

The DC Auditor has finally posted it here (link updated 2/8/12).   I had a copy but it was not widely available to the public.   So I asked for a copy and the DC Auditor posted it!

But wait, there is more.   You now can read the formal response of Eric Goulet, council budget director.   Goulet's response provides contextual information as well as insights into future earmark reforms.
