Audit: former city official didn't defraud Chicago
An audit of a former state treasurer in Ohio facing money laundering, wire fraud and other charges has concluded that he did not engage in similar illegal activities while he was Chicago's comptroller.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that after analyzing nearly 3 million records and conducting 31 interviews for the city, a law firm and an accounting firm found no evidence of wrongdoing by Amer Ahmad while he worked for Chicago. The investigation included interviews of 13 current and former senior city employees — including Ahmad.
Ahmad resigned from his job in Chicago in July. The next month he and another man were indicted by a federal grand jury for crimes prosecutors say occurred in Ohio between 2009 and 2011 while he was state treasurer there.
