Attorney General Sues Former Walkerton Library Director


Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller has filed a lawsuit against the former director of the Walkerton library, who’s accused of improper and unauthorized spending of public funds. The suit demands that Scott Klingerman repay the nearly $96,000 a recent State Board of Accounts audit found he embezzled from the library. According to our reporting partners at WNDU-TV, Zoeller says the audit results authorize him to take legal action. Audit findings indicate Klingerman made unauthorized withdrawals from library accounts to pay for personal health club memberships, restaurant and bar tabs and out-of-town hotels. Zoeller’s office has filed a complaint in St. Joseph County Superior Court to recover the funds.
