Kentucky’s State Auditor claims the former head of the Department of Agriculture oversaw “a toxic culture of entitlement” and that unelected “special districts” constitute a $2.7 billion “Ghost Government.” Reports of misuse of taxpayer money, and a "hostile workplace" have caused Kentucky’s Director of Emergency Management to resign.

These are just a few incidents causing concern about the management of governments and non-profits in Kentucky.

This week, on Eastern Standard, “Scandals in the Commonwealth.” 

Guests: Tom Eblen, Metro/State columnist for the Lexington Herald-Leader; Stephenie Hoelscher, Director of Communications for Kentucky Auditor of Public Accounts Adam Edelen;Danielle Clore, Director of the Kentucky Nonprofit Network; Stu Johnson, WEKU News producer/reporter.
