Portsmouth taxpayers foot the bill for Mayor Holley’s limos, travel, meals for him and his wife to places like Key West and Fort Lauderdale. WAVY TV-10 broke the story about $14,000 of taxpayer-paid travel, meals and hotels over the last 18 months. This while being fined by his own City Council, each of them asking […]
Sometimes I really feel special to have Jim Moran (D-VA-8) as my congressman.
