Anyone that has ever traveled on company business out of state has probably had to juggle the issue of either the expense account or a company credit card for incidentals like food and things like that.
I remember for years that I had a company card at a place that I worked at for the times I would have to go on business trips. I would use it for things like meals and only use it otherwise in extreme emergencies. Every time I would come back, they would ask me for the receipts to make sure that everything matched up.
Then one day, we started having to use our own money and then be reimbursed later. The reason? Some idiot in the company paid for a five hundred dollar meal for himself thinking he could get away with it. Just goes to show you that there is never a situation where awful people won’t abuse it.
Despite ranking 39th out of 50 states in Covid-19 cases, new Mexico Governor Michelle Grisham locked down the state stopping the general population from shopping for practically anything. But as has been verified, she called up a jewelry store and asked them to open up just for her.
Now, it appears she used state taxpayer money to buy groceries and booze.
She was using her Democratic privilege.
The same week, Whitmer traveled to her vacation home. Once she ended the lockdown on boats, she finally approved measures to allow boats which incidentally coincided with her husband’s desire to take their boat out.
He then dropped his wife’s name in order to skip over those who already signed up to get their boats launched.
FOX News reported:
New Mexico’s Democrat governor is on the defensive after a report this week detailed her office’s spending from a taxpayer-supported expense fund.
Records show Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham spent nearly $13,500 over a six-month period in 2020 on items such as groceries, dry cleaning and alcohol, the Sante Fe New Mexican reported.
The booze spending included a purchase in September of more than $200 for five bottles of tequila, two bottles of vodka, two bottles of Merlot and single bottles of whiskey and gin, the report said.
In the same report, the newspaper disclosed that Grisham was hosting in-person staff meetings at the governor’s mansion at the same time that she was urging the public against mixing households in order to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
