ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez has appointed an Albuquerque lawyer to fill a vacancy on the governing board of a financing agency that's scrambling to deal with the
issuance of a fake audit.
The governor named attorney Nann Winter to the New Mexico Finance Authority board on Wednesday, shortly before it held a meeting about the audit.
Winter and other board members scrapped a plan for an outside law firm - hired by and answering to the authority - to investigate how the fraudulent financial audit occurred.
The board wants a similar legal and accounting probe done under the supervision of the state auditor's office to ensure the work is independent.
The authority's top management hired a law firm law week but the board canceled the more than $1 million contract.
