Rep. Ives Files Resolution to Remove Auditor General Mautino

Today Rep. Ives and a group of fellow House Republicans filed HJR 158, a joint resolution that removes Frank Mautino from the office of Illinois Auditor General.

"We deserve an Auditor General beyond reproach and with the highest ethical standards," Rep. Ives stressed at a Chicago press conference. “Frank Mautino cannot effectively do his job as Auditor General while defending himself against potential criminal charges and a State Election Board investigation. If he will not do the right thing on his own and step aside, we have a responsibility as the people’s elected representatives to hold him accountable.”

Auditor General Frank Mautino has for months been under both state and federal investigations and has repeatedly refused  to answer questions.
