Sending five auditors is really pretty routine. You really should read the article you linked to throughly, who requested the audit? Come on read your own link.
As far as the state only auditing when things are wrong, you are showing your reporter like grasp of how state government works. The state audits and reviews agencies, departments, offices, etc. all the time. It was the bright ideal of the guy in Sam's picture, when he was a State Senator, and a few other people have expanded it since.
I need a new source of fiction glad you're going back into journalism.
