Political Wire: Mississippi Taxpayers Funded Haley Barbour's Travels
March 21, 2011

Mississippi Taxpayers Funded Barbour's Travels

Mississippi taxpayers "forked over more than $18,602 for Gov. Haley Barbour's trip to Las Vegas for a 'project meeting' last March -- a trip in which he hobnobbed with potential donors and powerplayers," the Clarion-Ledger reports.

"The state also paid for Barbour's bodyguards' to stay in $858-a-night hotel rooms during a trip to New York last June."

"From those trips to others across the country, Barbour and his bodyguards racked up more than $300,000 in out-of-state travel expenses in 2010, according to documents obtained by The Clarion-Ledger through public records requests."

4. This is nothing new the tax payers won't even get mad about it unless they're dems.
Other than that southern voters are comfortable getting screwed over by state government now the federal government is another story.
