POST FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Lottery Commission has revoked a northern Idaho senior center's charitable bingo license over alleged record-keeping violations.

The Coeur D'Alene Press reports (http://bit.ly/1VwH3Rh ) the revocation order for the Post Falls Senior Center follows a six-month probation period during which the senior center was expected to fix problems found in its bingo records.

According to the order, lottery officials found several bank transactions and checks that couldn't be reconciled as well as missing bingo cards, which must be tracked during every bingo session.

The senior center was put on probation December 2014 to May 2015, but they allegedly continued to violate reporting requirements.

Rob Clark, the senior center's chairman of the board, says the problems are a result of miscommunication and clerical errors and not the misappropriation of funds.
