Gov. candidate Gregg calls for audit

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The recent I-Team 8 report about overpaid taxes by some Indiana businesses prompted a call Monday for a complete audit of state government.

Democratic candidate for governor John Gregg also made a call for stronger whistleblower laws in Indiana state government.

Cathy Luff told I-Team 8 that she risked her career by disclosing that companies including Andy Mohr Chevrolet overpaid taxes in 2010 and were notified only if they fell into the 2 percent of companies that receive a state audit.

"We've got to have this audit," said Gregg. "And we can't wait till the end of May when we're finally going to pick a firm and then we're finally going to let 'em just look at just one state agency. They need to look at all state revenue. This is the fourth error."

Gregg also called on Republican candidate Mike Pence to address the recent money problems in state government.
