Republican Ohio Auditor, Keith Faber wants more training for public employees to spot government fraud and corruption and requiring them to speedily report suspected crimes, as a way of improving the state’s ability to root out and prosecute bad actors and recoup taxpayer money. Faber says his office has raised the bar for catching officials at all levels of government who are trying to lie, cheat and steal from public coffers. His calls for additional training and reporting came as Faber marked his office’s 100th conviction for fraud and corruption…most at the local government level…since 2019, when he began his first term as auditor. Those cases have resulted in more than $5 million dollars in restitution and findings for recovery totaling over $18.3 million dollars.
