(Bismarck, ND) -- A North Dakota lawmaker is disputing a state auditor's report that has implicated him in wrongdoing in the one-point-eight million dollar cost overrun in the Attorney General's office.
Representative Jason Dockter owns the building leased by the late Wayne Stenehjem's office, which racked up questionable costs according to a State Auditor's report in September.
Docktor has released a conflicting report, saying the costs for the lease are well within the market rate.
Dockter says the AG's office had the money in its budget to pay for the lease.
