KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A state audit faults the way a nonprofit group is being run. It was founded by a former state lawmaker with funding from a specialty license plate.
Former House Republican leader H.E. Bittle tells The Knoxville News Sentinel the report shows "not a single penny was misspent" by his Sportsman's Wildlife Foundation.
But the state comptroller's office found problems with a nonprofit board comprised almost entirely of Bittle's relatives paying him more than $3,500 a month to be its president.
The group's aim is to benefit young people through a hunting lodge being built in Cumberland County.
