SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The former director of The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture in Spokane violated multiple state laws, according to a new report by the state auditor’s office.

The investigation concluded that former MAC Executive Director Forrest Rodgers didn’t follow state and federal rules on contracting, was improperly reimbursed for travel expenses and violated ethics laws.

The Spokesman-Review says the report was issued Thursday.

In his response to the draft audit, Rodgers countered that he took over a museum that believed itself to be a nonprofit, not a state agency.

The museum board fired Rodgers in February and is conducting a nationwide search for his replacement.
