Another example of Democrats' incompetence and injustice to taxpayers money! They don't care. They do not obey federal/state laws; huge sums of taxpayer money comes up missing and unaccounted for and they get nothing for breaking such laws. Double standards for these folks needs to stop. Just ONE out of many reasons to NOT vote democrat:

Former Attorney General Darrell McGraw's office reimbursed more than $54,000 for employee education without paying appropriate federal taxes, a West Virginia legislative audit states.

The audit released Tuesday says McGraw's administration spent almost $21,000 for one employee's out-of-state graduate classes in less than three months. Another employee was reimbursed about $26,500 over two years.The most recent was reimbursed $6,700 in fiscal year 2012 for in-state university studies.

The assistance dated back to 1999. Payments went unreported on employee W-2 forms back through 2004, possibly earlier. That means Social Security and Medicare tax

Stop the dumbing down of our kids; Vote the liberals OUT!

The democrats keep this state a under-educated, under-skilled environment to keep getting re-elected. When you owe your soul to someone for food, clothing, housing....they'll keep extorting you from cradle to grave. Dependents govt liberals why they hate THINKERS and those who are SELF-sustaining individuals who need NO govt help!

One more 'sign' of liberal intolerance is this newspaper as they even DICTATE and CENSOR opinions and words such as the one below that they refused to allow printed by a reader...P*O*R*N books are being forced on high school students as reading material. Is it any wonder WV teachers keep getting arrested for sexually assaulting our children???????

Oh but it appears it WILL be tolerated as Democrats and some fake conservatives demand Common Core federal mandated non-educational studies. Common core should be referred to as Rotten Core because that's exactly what it is. It teaches propaganda, takes the Revolutionary War historical FACTS out of our history books; promotes **** books as reading book lists for high school students and other immoral low-level studies. It teaches kids WHAT to think and not HOW to think for themselves. The left won't 'tolerate' a different view, opinion or FACTS. So until we vote all these corrupt little wannabe dictators out of office in WV; and replace with REAL conservatives who dont want to attempt to 're-write American history' and indoctrinate little children with nothing but lies and propaganda....WV will continue to graduate less intelligent individuals all for the 'liberal common good' for the dictators pleasure.

Let's do the math. What's the single common denominator in this state and our low ratings? Care to guess? Democrats! It's not a difficult solution. Change the people who run the state, and you get rid of the people holding this state back. Even Obama said it. You can't keep the same people in office, using the same failed policies, and expect anything to change.

Apparently West Virginians love failure, because they keep reelecting the same, self-serving Democrats year after year. We have accepted failure pretty much our entire existence as a state because the Democratic Party has pretty much ran this state most of its existence. I guess when you're a welfare state, all it takes is a few handouts to keep their support. It's pretty sad when people from Ohio, PA and other surrounding states move here because we offer better welfare benefits.
