Iowa Democrats are set to nominate Jon Murphy, a government bureaucrat, as their nominee for State Auditor.
Murphy is claiming that Republican State Auditor Dave Vaudt is playing partisan politics and not being the true taxpayer watchdog the people deserve. Murphy recently told the Des Moines Register, “Yet instead of providing leadership and acting as a true taxpayer’s watchdog, the incumbent auditor has been the GOP’s primary attack dog.”
Murphy’s attacks on Vaudt are laughable. Vaudt has warned Governor Culver repeatedly about the state’s budgeting practices, use of one-time funds to balance the books, and huge budget gaps that state government would ultimately have to contend with.
Governors Vilsack and Culver dismissed Vaudt’s warnings and we now know that he was correct in warning the people of Iowa.
