Audit Faults Reiner Panel, but Campaign Laws Not Broken

An audit of a state commission chaired by Rob Reiner found a number of problems with the way it managed and awarded P.R. and advertising contracts, the Los Angeles Times reports. But the audit showed that no laws were broken when the California Children and Families Commission ran ads touting the benefits of preschool at the same time that Reiner was launching a campaign for a universal preschool initiative. Voters rejected Prop. 82 last June. The Times had reported that the commission used $23 million to pay for preschool ads as the commission was launched, but the audit showed that the expenditure fell within the law. Reiner resigned from the commission in March. Among the audit’s findings were that the commission paid $1.2 million more than it should have in administrative costs.
