It’s a shame that a group that does so much for children is finding itself mired in financial controversy. The Oklahoma CASA Association is made up mostly of volunteers that act as advocates for abused and neglected children as their cases proceed through the court system. Anna Naukam, the association’s director, was fired in October, and now agency officials are challenging the legitimacy of large credit card debt issued to Naukam on the agency’s behalf. The Oklahoman’s Ann Kelley reported that the credit card statements were mailed to Naukam’s home. The state auditor and inspector’s office is involved, and we hope the problems will be resolved quickly. Nothing should distract from the good work of CASA volunteers.
