Via Americablog, this is really, really, really sweet:
Georgia political analyst Bill Shipp reports that former Sen. Zell Miller – the guy who piously brags about his own integrity – essentially stole $80,000 from Georgia taxpayers upon leaving office when he was governor.
According to Shipp, who was quoting a WSB-TV investigation, Miller “pocketed more than $60,000 in taxpayer funds earmarked for entertainment and other expenses at the Governor’s Mansion.” Miller “also picked up a check for more than $20,000 for ‘unused leave’ – a sum to which he was not entitled as a constitutional officer.”
Here’s the link to the original story:
Experts are voicing concerns about how and why former Gov. Zell Miller departed the Governor’s Mansion with over $60,000 in taxpayer dollars.
Every living Georgia governor, including Jimmy Carter, says they would not have kept the money or considered that it belongs to them.
Miller is busy promoting his new book, “A Deficit in Decency.”
The snark, it burns us.
