I doubt this story is going anywhere - if there was "misused" of taxpayer dollars it was done unintentionally. All three mentioned are excellant public servants.

County Administrator Faye Outlaw on Wednesday asked for an independent investigation into the allegations. How can an audit by J Gaines be considered independent or impartial when Mr. Gaines serves on the Board of Lawnwood Hospital with Joe Smith? Conflict of interest at its finest!

Why aren't we looking into other misuse of public money. Like heating the jail in the summer and cooling the jail in the winter. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? Or is this, a new more cynical behavior to torture inmates?
