Regent: Outside Audit on Iowa State Planes Would have been Better

by Associated Press

AMES, Iowa — A member of the Board of Regents says he would’ve preferred an outside audit into Iowa State University President Steven Leath’s potential misuse of school planes.

Regent Subhash Sahai says he had the flu Monday and missed a board meeting to discuss an internal audit that detailed dozens of questionable flights but left other questions unresolved.

Leath reimbursed $19,000 for 56 flights that were for personal flight training, to medical appointments in Minnesota and to take relatives to an NCAA tournament game. Afterward, board president Bruce Rastetter indicated Leath would keep his job.

Sahai said in September he was “dumbfounded and outraged” about Leath’s personal plane use, including a damaging hard landing last year. He wrote in an email Tuesday that an “external audit would have been much more helpful.”
