OTTAWA–Outgoing Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is facing an internal audit over the use of party funds to cover his children's private school tuition.

Two sources told the Star Friday night that the Conservative Fund board, which manages the party's finances and counts former prime minister Stephen Harper as a member, has ordered a forensic audit into the party's expenditures.

The decision comes after revelations that Conservative Party Executive Director Dustin van Vugt approved using party funds to partly cover tuition for Scheer's five children at Ottawa private schools.
