LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear says he is reviewing auditor Adam Edelen's scathing investigation into Kentucky's Emergency Management division.

The report says the office used millions of taxpayer dollars to fund entertainment, alcohol and much more.

"We're going to review it thoroughly," Gov. Beshear said. "And once we get that review done, we're going to take whatever action we think is appropriate. Should Gen. Heltzel be fired based on that audit? At this point, we haven't taken any options off the table. We'll make a decision after we review the report."

The Emergency Management office is disputing the findings.

The report has also been sent to the U.S. Office of Homeland Security, the state Attorney General and the state Ethics Commission.
