LIVE: State Auditor General DePasquale Discusses Voting Equipment Controversy

CLICK HERE TO WATCH State auditor general Eugene DePasquale discusses the results of his review of how counties obtain voting equipment. The investigation is a result of Luzerne County election director Marisa Crispell’s ties to a county vendor. In  December said DePasquale said he would conduct a review of how counties obtain voting equipment. He cited Crispell’s service two years ago on the advisory board of Election Systems & Software — which supplied the voting machines the county has used for more than 10 years, as well as an electronic poll book system the county purchased last year — as the impetus for his review. DePasquale called Crispell’s trips to advisory board meetings at the company’s expense a “disgrace” and described her March 2017 trip to a meeting in Las Vegas as a “junket.”
