State Auditor Tom Schweich outlined to journalists what “red flags” he uses in his investigations of corruption in governmental entities, and hinted that he believes embezzlement cases are on the rise even though he  has no comparisons with other years since he has been auditor. Schweich, who is running for re-election this year, spoke to Missouri journalists Thursday at an annual Day at the Capital sponsored by the Associated Press and Missouri Press Association.

He stated 25 public officers have been investigated for embezzlement since he’s been the auditor, and investigating that crime has been one of his chief priorities since he assumed the office. He said it has been “amazing” how many embezzlement cases involving public officials have come to light. He explained that his office has found large problems in some school districts.
