A review by staff in the state auditor’s office raises questions about past-due credit card bills racked up during Chet Culver’s term as governor.
The review of accounts in the governor’s office covered the period from July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010 when Chet Culver was governor. It found that during that 12-month period, five monthly bills for the office credit card were paid 25 days late, racking up late fees.
The report from the auditor’s office did not provide other details about those transactions. But auditors did note that when Governor Terry Branstad took over in January, his chief of staff began reviewing bills and invoices once a week to ensure payments are made on time.
