Can Wendy Audit the actual cost of Campaign Mailers?

Does the City Controller Wendy "The Valley Greuel" do Campaign Mail Audits?

Can I call and report potential Campaign Consulting Fraud?
What is the actually cost of mailing campaign literature?

We reach out this morning to City Controller (and 2013 Mayoral Candidate) Wendy Greuel to seek her help with this little auditing request. As Controller Greuel would readily state, she is all about finding fraud and waste through her numerous "audits" (and garnering the maximum media attention) That said, we ask if Controller Greuel and her crack team of fiscal investigators, could take a break from searching city agencies for "fiscally-based media opportunities" and help us with this billing matter in the legal document above.
In Section D, a "Patricia Duchene" charges $146,160.72 to print and mail campaign advertisements to approximately 254,000 persons. Taking into consideration that these are all register voters, then account for the fact that one household on average has more than one register voter, can we make a case that the unit price charged for each mailer, considering the bulk size, was inflated beyond its actual cost? We should also note in Section D, that "Duchene" was actually paid $164,344.21 for the work above and received a check totaling $75,000, for an undisclosed reason. Anybody with an elementary grasps of finances could find merit for an audit of this transaction. ** Plus, it would benefit those auditing the numbers, to engage campaign professionals for there background on the actual cost of bulk campaign mailings. 
But moving beyond matters of fiscal auditing, into the subject area of political accountability, we ask Mayoral Candidate Wendy Greuel, to explain this political formula ........
First, your campaign garners media attention, by standing by your brothers and sisters in Labor, via returning this small contribution from WalMarts Javier Angulo.

E - Payment 
(RFD - Returned Contribution)

Desc: Contribution returned 6/25/12 

[Period: 01/01/12 to 06/30/12]

Yet, the wife of your Campaign Consultant John Shallman, through her d,b,a "West Coast Public Affairs" benefited greatly from doing business with campaign organizations financed by the likes of ....      
Thus, can we take the fact that a City Controller's subjective audits for the sake of building political capital to finance elected advancement, mixed with the reality of the, "silence of denial", regarding the dubious financial dealings of her campaign consultant, creates a political equation that would not add up to a winning formula for Mayor in 2013?

Your thoughts ..............

Wendy will throw John under the boss in a half a a second if it helps her win the race.

Loyalty is not a big thing for her.
