County employee bought dog tuxedo, diamond bracelet with county credit card


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.
