A legislative audit finds the former head of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association may have
fraudulently spent thousands of dollars of association money including as much as $50,000 on cigars.

The audit claims Tommy Henry, who retired in 2007, may have improperly used an LHSAA credit card to buy himself clothes or pay for such things as his golf fees and equipment during the audit period of June 2005 to October 2007.

According to the audit, no credit card receipts were kept during the time period, but Henry did admit to auditors that he used the credit card to pay for some personal expenses.

During a telephone interview, Henry denied any wrongdoing and said that every year LHSAA was audited by "state-approved auditors."
