Illinois Auditor General Frank Mautino missed Monday's deadline to submit his amended campaign finance reports, the State Board of Elections has confirmed.
The state elections board, which had ordered Mautino to explain his campaign spending during his time as a state legislator, will now move to set a public hearing on the issue.
Mautino, whose spokesman declined to comment Tuesday on the missed deadline, has faced calls for answers about his past use of campaign funds, including large payments his political committee made to a bank and a vehicle service station in Spring Valley.
Mautino, of Spring Valley, served in the Illinois House from 1991 until last year, when he was tapped for the role of Illinois Auditor General to replace William Holland, who retired.
A federal probe is reportedly underway into Mautino's campaign spending.
Earlier this month, a group of Republican Illinois lawmakers filed a resolution seeking the removal of Mautino as auditor general.
