A multi-million dollar investment heavily subsidized by Wayne County that a Mackinac Center expert warned against more than a year ago has come under fire by auditors, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Wayne County “botched” the $32.5 million project, called an "Aerotropolis," the Free Press reported, and “bookkeeping for the project was so shoddy that auditors couldn’t accurately tally the jobs” created. Jobs that were counted included “UPS delivery persons” and people working at hardware stores.

“The record of government investments in business is awful,” Mike LaFaive, director of the Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative, told the Free Press.
