"My audits affect people, and I made sure the accuracy of this audit is complete," said Burrage. "but I take very much offense in you saying I covered up information or anything like that. I can assure you that will not happen."
Burrage told Reynolds he (Reynolds) had had a different attitude when he (Burrage) talked to him two hours before Reynolds' news conference.
"I do not appreciate your attitude," Burrage told Reynolds. "I think you are arrogant. My audit will prove for itself what it is supposed to do."
Reynolds said he did not accuse Burrage of covering up anything.
"I don't have to put up with this," Burrage said and left the room.
Reynolds said he became involved with the probe after hearing allegations that some Broken Arrow teachers were paid undeserved sick leave.
Reynolds said Thursday he also was concerned the audit might not include allegations of bid splitting, shredded documents and altered school board minutes.
