All I ask is that we go out for more than two piece and a biscuit.
Today’s story on KCAL-9 in Los Angeles:
A room here at the Ritz in Laguna certainly isn’t the Motel 6. According to this receipt, it cost taxpayers more than “$400 a night. Nearly $2,000 for a four day conference attended by [Housing] Commissioner Margarita Garr.
Bob Stern, the former chief counsel for the California Fair Political Practices Commission, says you can’t have it both ways.
“In my view, you either take the per diem or you charge your meals up to the per diem but you don’t do both.”
But three commissioners split the bill, including Commissioner Garr. And put it on their credit cards…after getting their cash advance.”
All the facts aren’t in but this doesn’t look goo.
Commissioner Garr, you have a job. Save your pennies and eat luxuriously on your own dime while you … ahem … help the poor.
And for goodness sake, if you must get, get something with lasting value.
