A draft audit shows issues with the finances of the Democratic Party of South Dakota.   

The report shows the organization understated payments by $2.5 million dollars in 2015 and 2016.

The audit performed by the Federal Election Commission also showed more than $67,000 worth of contributions from unregistered organizations. 

Plus, the group didn’t disclose more than $46,000 worth of debts and obligations.

Another audit, this one by the Iowa Department of Public Safety shows more than 5,800 licenses were issued to private security workers without required background checks.

The audit largely blames the problems on the actions of a former department clerk who was fired late last year.
