Wednesday's "Jeer" from Edward Lindsay, criticizing the T for not conducting annual audits, spread misinformation.

The T has an annual financial audit performed by a respected local accounting firm. The last several audits are available for reading or downloading on the T's website. All of them are clean audits, meaning there were no exceptions from generally accepted accounting practices.

In addition, the T is subject to a variety of safety and other operating audits and every three years receives an audit by the Federal Transit Administration.

In the last such triennial audit, the T received a perfect score.

You should check the facts in a "Jeer" as thoroughly as you would a news story.
