State Auditor Behind On Taxes

North Carolina's top financial watchdog has fallen behind on paying the property taxes she owes on her Raleigh home.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday state auditor Beth Wood owes Wake County about $1,200. The tax bill was due in September and started accruing interest last month.

The Democrat is a certified public accountant who took office last year. Wood says she borrowed $90,000 to pump into her campaign, and she's like other average people trying to juggle debts.

Wood makes $123,000 a year as state auditor. She says her personal finances are irrelevant to her work in state government.
