- Full Report:
This letter is a response to a telephone inquiry on January 13, 1983, about the proper disposition of funds recovered in the case of United States v. [DELETED]. This case arises from the embezzlement of funds from the Federal Election Commission.
It was found that GAO informed the Justice Department's attorney handling this case that recoveries are for deposit to the relevant fiscal year 1982 Commission appropriation account and may be used to liquidate obligations properly incurred before the embezzlement was discovered. In this connection, the Commission has informed GAO that its only outstanding unliquidated obligation is for approximately $43,000 owed to the District of Columbia unemployment fund.
