Telephone Snafu costs Colorado Taxpayers nearly $8M

As a member of the Colorado Legislature for nearly nine years, and a member of the state's Legislative Audit Committee of four years, I am aghast at the waste of taxpayer dollars I see in virtually every area of government. I have called for an Audit of this particular program of offering welfare recipients assistance in payment of phone bills. IT IS NOT A FUNCTION OF GOVERNMENT to take taxpayer money and pay for phone service for welfare recipients. Please read my Press Release Also read related article in Denver Post.
