"The spending levels at the Trump hotel were so high that they were flagged by a worker in the state controller’s office, who sought guidance on state regulations for reimbursing such expenditures.
“The reason I am asking is because the Governor and some of his staff are staying in Washington, D.C. pretty frequently at the Trump International Hotel and the room cost is WAY more than the allowed amount,” the worker wrote to Deputy Controller Shirley Browne in June 2017, following a particularly costly month. “He is not attending a conference of any type but is meeting with the President, testifying, meeting with lawmakers and others, etc. so the normal exemptions (to state spending limits) do not apply.”
If you guys can’t see what’s going on I don’t know what to tell you. I guess it’s gonna be up to junior workers to document all the grifting that going on so they can then pass that info on and it’ll be compiled into a database. Attorney Generals will then file suit since our President is doing exactly what our founders didn’t want a President to do.
All this stuff is so blatant that it’s really a slap in the face of Republican voters. Trump and the rest of the grifters are daring his base to cross him. I think they’re too scared to say a word.
Is there some communication between the former governor and Trump that if he stays at a Trump facility, everything he asks for will be approved? How does this go against the President…because he stayed at one of his hotels? I personally wouldn’t stay at a Trump hotel because it isn’t worth it to me to cut that kind of a check. I also think it’s disgraceful when a public official is so careless with their taxpayers’ money but I don’t see how this reflects on the President unless…there was some sort of agreement?
Guess we should really blame it all on obama anyway.
If obama didn’t
-usurp Congressional powers to declare Kathadin a National Park, then
-LePage wouldn’t have come to Washington to testify before Congress, so
-he wouldn’t have had to stay in the trump hotel, and
-there wouldn’t be a question about his travel expenses from the new administration
