Wolf Calls for Audit of DNC Funds

Member Group : News Releases

Gov. Wolf is asking the state auditor general review the $10 million that state taxpayers donated to the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee last year for the Democratic National Convention.

The donation was the biggest in an effort that raised $86 million. Last week, the Inquirer reported that the host committee used a $4 million surplus to give nearly $1 million in bonuses to the 12-member host committee staff, $1.2 million in grants to local nonprofits, and more than $800,000 in municipal services refunds to the city.
