Nebraska’s state auditor says an alcohol prevention group made a number of unpermitted and unreasonable purchases with grant funding in 2015 and 2016.

The report, issued by State Auditor Charlie Janssen on Wednesday, says Project Extra Mile’s expenses included a $4,600 dinner that was more entertainment than business as well as too many meals for training events.

The nonprofit’s interim director, Diane Riibe, says the report was politically motivated, nitpicky and factually incorrect in spots. She says there was no fraud, mismanagement or malfeasance in handling of the funds.

Mary Avery, the state auditor office’s special audits and finance manager, says the auditor began the review after the office heard substantiated concerns about the nonprofit’s spending of federal dollars.

The majority of the group’s money comes from grants.
