“I haven’t spent a lot of effort asking if there is going to be any cooperation. I am just trying to do my job,” (Speaker of the House Glenn Richardson) said. “If refuse to cooperate … they will have a budget of zero. This is not a request. You are going to have a zero in your budget if you don’t come forward with information.”
I don't know which is more ridiculous, the idea that the departments would refuse such an audit, or that the Speaker of the House would threaten to completely defund them. I think I have a man crush on the Speaker.
