Officials Charge $332,000 to Airport Credit Cards

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Four officials at the Blue Grass Airport
have charged a combined $332,000 to their airport credit cards for
expenses ranging from Hannah Montana tickets to video games and
golf lessons.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Sunday the charges were
accrued during the last three years. Each of the three men earned
annual salaries more than $135,000.
Charges also included tickets to sporting events, a visit to a
strip club and other trips across the country. Airport credit cards
were also used to by Christmas presents for co-workers, gasoline,
dry-cleaning, car washes and meals at various local restaurants.
David Wescott, a hired airport spokesman, says it's difficult to
imagine how some of the expenses could be appropriate.
