We’re used to stories about corruption in government. But seldom has fraudulent use of taxpayer funds been this cute.
People had fun this week with a story about a woman working for a county judge in Arkansas who fraudulently charged $200,000 to a county credit card – using it to buy a dog tuxedo, among other things.
Kristi Lyn Goss, 44, used a Garland County credit card to buy a dog tuxedo for her pet pug; the dog also got pet insurance, according to the Associated Press. Goss also used the county credit card to buy a diamond bracelet, sports tickets and throw pillows.
Doc Thompson and Kal Elsebai talked about dog costumes on Friday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” – because the dog tuxedo was clearly the most important part of the odd government corruption story. Doc remembered the Halloween when his wife insisted in getting a lobster costume for the dog.
