Leyton is not Corporation Counsel. Why not bring in a forensic auditor?

Note: The commissioners has since made Leyton Corporation Counsel and gave him a bonus. Since they control his budget don't expect much traction on this issue.

Despite 2 lawsuits and expenses approaching $1 million, there are allegations the County Commission is still using this money for the general fund. The county is reportedly using Corporation Counsel, which is now Leyton with a substantial bonus, to justify using the money instead of the Register of Deeds.

REVISED JUDICATURE ACT OF 1961 (EXCERPT)
Act 236 of 1961

600.2568 Automation fund.
Sec. 2568.

(1) Each county in this state shall establish an automation fund, and that fund shall receive money deposited by the register of deeds of the county in accordance with section 2567.
