Mike Edmonson’s Attorneys Respond To Audit
Retired State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmondson’s attorney has responded to a legislative audit that found evidence of misconduct and tax evasion throughout his nine-year tenure. The letter touted Edmonson’s character and leadership, but Loyola Law Professor Dane Ciolino says there was one notable omission.
“Col. Edmondson has serious issues to deal with in a number of different fora, including a federal grand jury, federal tax authorities, and state officials.”
Edmondson’s was accused of using a state facility for housing, and not reporting it on his taxes. Ciolino says finding a defense for that accusation will be difficult…
“The internal revenue code requires that staying in a place be a condition of employment, and certainly that was not the case here.”
