How America's youngest state auditor uncovered the largest public corruption scandal in the history of the nation's poorest state

"A must read" with all the thrills of a John Grisham novel -- for fans of shocking true crime exposés like Black Edge and Bad Blood (Peter Schweizer, author of Secret Empires)

This riveting exposé details how a small team of auditors and investigators, led by the youngest State Auditor in the country, uncovered a brazen scheme where the powerful stole millions in welfare funds from the poor in a sprawling conspiracy that stretched from Mississippi to Malibu.

Well-connected donors, highly placed officials, and popular public figures, including Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, diverted tens of millions of dollars from the federal government's TANF -- temporary assistance for needy families -- program until a Republican auditor, his small team of dedicated investigators, and a Democratic prosecutor joined forces to hold them accountable in the face of intense obstruction and harassment.

Peopled with unforgettable characters -- from the perpetrators; to the impoverished citizens for whom the money was intended; to the investigators, prosecutors, and reporters who held them to account -- Mississippi Swindle is a political and true crime drama that highlights larger crises while appealing to a broad nationwide audience.
