A stunning report from KATV and reporter Marine Glisovic shows just how easy it is for officials to waste your tax payer money…
Through the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, Channel 7 reviewed thousands of receipts and invoices dating from July 2018 to March 2019. We discovered that Secretary of State John Thurston, who was elected in November, gave his new office in the Arkansas State Capitol a face-lift that cost taxpayers $68,000.
“I don’t just look at this office or this building as a place where state employees work, or where elected officials have meetings,” Thurston said. “It’s the centerpiece of our state.” Read the whole report on KATV’s website here >>>
Stunning.@ARGOP Secretary of State spent $68k tax dollars to trick out his new office.
18k Arkansans don’t have healthcare because we “can’t afford” Medicaid Expansion.
They are lying and treating themselves to luxury.
Excellent reporting by @KATVMarine & @KATVNews. #arpx pic.twitter.com/pbpjKw3oow
