Division of Parks Failed to Account for Millions of Dollars

An audit says the Colorado Division of Parks failed to properly account for millions of dollars.

It says parks misspent tens of thousands more, including hiring an $800-an-hour comedian and overpaying for food.

The audit, released Tuesday, said $9.4 million hadn't been properly accounted for.

Officials found that most was spent on land purchases - but $600,000 remains unaccounted for.
