As the News-Gazette dutifully reported after the September 29 Candidate Forum (View Here), I noted that sitting auditor Farney’s Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) had a missing $12.4 Million component, so that its Assets — Liabilities did not come to the Net Position. Farney proudly signed this document, without carefully reading it.

He took my advice and found the large mistake, but he did so without running any erratum—or even redating the document. Both the Before and After versions are dated September 4.

The original PAFR can be seen here: pafr2015. Go to digital page 10 to see the original, flawed, and internally inconsistent Statement of Net Position.

Farney’s redacted PAFR is now on the Champaign County Auditor’s website.
