In a statement yesterday, Sandoval's spokeswoman called Brown's characterization "wrong and irresponsible."

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — State auditors say Nevada state museums aren't doing a good job of keeping track of the toys, books and medallions they have in their gift shops and could be leaving the door open for theft. Museum officials blame the problems on chronic staffing shortages from recession-era budget cuts and layoffs, and a glitch-prone cash processing computer system that they plan to replace by summer.
