Auditor: MSFA free tickets for family and friends violated ethics

Nonpartisan state legislative auditor Jim Nobles says in a special report that the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority “violated a core ethical principle” with who received tickets to the luxury suites at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The auditor urged tighter controls by the Legislature and Gov. Mark Dayton, who appoints a majority of the panel, because the MSFA’s “misuse of a public resource has damaged its credibility and diminished public trust.” Nobles said his office often conducts routine financial audits of the MSFA, but in the future “will expand our scope — or conduct supplementary audits — to examine many other aspects of the authority’s performance.”
