EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley has released the full, unedited copy of the recording she made of the City of Evansville 2012 audit exit conference conducted by the Indiana State Board of Accounts.

Brinkerhoff-Riley says she does not believe she has broken the law by recording the exit interview.

She says state auditors gave the city finances an overall "Qualified Opinion" with "Adverse Opinions" on select portions.

According to Brinkerhoff-Riley, a "Qualified Opinion" is issued when accounting practices do not comply with generally accepted account principles.

Brinkerhoff-Riley is calling on the Winnecke administration to outline a plan to resolve the issues raised by state auditors and present the plan to city council for review and approval.
