The Capitol-Journal complains that Connie Morris is Off again:
Morris, who was defeated in the primary during her bid for re-election to the Kansas State Board of Education, repeated this week her intentions of having taxpayers pick up the bill for two out-of-state trips to education conferences during the final months of her tenure.
One of those trips, to Washington, D.C., is scheduled after her last state board meeting. No problem, she says. She has promised to provide a written report of what she learns at that meeting. That had better be some kind of report.
Morris defends taking the trips by arguing that leaving money in her travel account would say, “I slacked in my duty.”
Personally, I think that if these travel costs are the price of being rid of Connie Morris, we should pay the money and be rid of her.
And if her reports aren’t top notch, sue her to recover the expenses.
