February 25, 2006 - Posted at 12:54 p.m. CST

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ A member of the Arkansas Legislative Black

Caucus has asked state auditors to review the books of the caucus

and an affiliated nonprofit, the Arkansas Legislative Black Caucus

Foundation.

State Representative Booker T- Clemons of Pine Bluff says he is

concerned about what happened to money raised at a foundation gala

on March 20th, 2004.

Seats sold for as much as 100 dollars a plate and proceeds were

to go to the William H- Townsend Scholarship Fund. Clemons said no

scholarships have been awarded.

Caucus executive director Vivian Flowers says one scholarship

for 600 dollars was awarded in November.
