    If any state agency is misusing state property. it's news. If Matt Campbell, a blog writer, thinks he is being lied to, that's NOT news. Substance here? Giving a blog free press?!?

    What I see as the big issue here is that nobody knows who (specifically) is using credit cards, and in the case of gasoline cards where (specifically) the gas is going. Without that information cards could be misused very easily. Anybody remember Steve Clark?

    Employees of this state that I know, write a fleet number (state issued number assigned to vehicle) and the odometer reading on the gas receipt. I guess these guys exempted themselves from those trivial matters.
