Now we know why the DC politicians are not driving Volts to the office. CBS: “As the CourierPress reports, the local news article caused enough outcry to force Judge Stanley to appear in front of the entire Wayne County Board last week to explain his actions.” The green machine is now costing real green.
“The charges? That he was using public funds to charge his $39,995 Volt, while residents of Wayne County were struggling with $4-a-gallon gas.
Sadly for the newspaper, and thankfully for the County Board, the explanation given by Judge Stanley was far from salacious.
Upon buying his plug-in hybrid, Judge Stanley had approached the local Sheriff to ask for approval to install an outlet to charge his car at the courthouse.”
They determined cost per charge, determined the number of charges, and the judge is now being billed. To save face the judge has offered to pay double.
I wonder how he feels about .orgs such as Planned Parenthood funding anti-Romney ads in swing states for Millions.
