Galloway questions Parson spending when he was lieutenant governor

Posted online

A new audit from Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway's office found questionable spending by Gov. Mike Parson when he was lieutenant governor.

Examples included $111 worth of mileage that was reimbursed via taxpayer dollars for Parson to attend a Kansas City Chiefs game. He also was reimbursed $133 for mileage to attend the opening of country music artist Billy Yates’ theater.
