Two months after the St. Louis City Recorder of Deeds resigned, the State Auditor's office says it will look into the office's finances.
Wrap: Former St. Louis City Recorder of Deeds Sharon Carpenter resigned her office in July after she admitted to hiring a relative, which is a violation of the state's nepotism law.
St. Louis City Democratic Senator Jamilah Nasheed has also accused her of not handling preservation fees properly and using a city-owned vehicle for personal use.
|Description: "I think it is incumbent for the community here in the city of St. Louis to have a better and a clearer understanding as to how the finances have been spent within the Recorder of Deeds office."|
The audit comes after a request from Gov. Jay Nixon.
