Corruption and Cover up at Washington State Auditor’s Office – the Untold Story
Wanted, one or more investigative reporters to expose the criminal conduct and cover-up inside the Washington State Auditor’s Office.
The State Auditor’s Office, most recently under the leadership of Troy Kelley, has been engaged in what is believed to be a criminal cover-up. The Washington State Legislature has mandated Filing Fees for official documents required by law to be filed. The State Auditor’s office has turned a blind eye while hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of dollars of these mandatory fees are not being collected by county auditors. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 40% of all those uncollected fees are earmarked for the eradication of homeless.
“All such other papers or writing as are required by law to be recorded and such as are required by law to be filed” RCW 65.04.030(3), must be “incorporate[ed] into the official public records” RCW 65.04.015, “using a process that has been tested and approved for the intended purpose by the state archivist” RCW 65.04.040. Each document must have a unique Auditor or Recording Officer File number RCW 65.04.015(4), with the requisite fee paid RCW 65.04.130.
Where is the law that exempts County Auditors from collecting filing fees from elected and appointed county officers for Appointments and Oaths of Office and thus thwarting the legislative efforts to eradicate homelessness? We have asked that question and have been met with silence. [Video]
Where is the law that exempts the State Auditor from collecting mandatory filing fees for state officers who are required to file Appointments and Oaths of Office? No one will produce evidence of such exemption.
The Maxim of Law states “What does not appear, does not exist”.
Why is the STATE AUDITOR not doing his job? Is he not responsible for “…– overseeing other government agencies and offices to determine whether they are following all federal and state laws and proper accounting practices”?

While Troy Kelley may have been indicted for business matters prior to elective office as State Auditor, has anyone asked why the immediate demand Kelley resign? Could it be that they want him out of office before anyone investigates what was going on inside the State Auditor’s office under Kelley’s tenure?
Corruption and cover up in the State Auditor’s Office – the story yet to be told.
