“Taxpayers and students shouldn’t have to pay for golf shoes and the president’s driver’s license. Sure, golf is a common business activity, but many people get by the odd work-related golf event with running shoes,“ said CTF Prairie Director Colin Craig.
Ms. Forsyth’s expense total from September 2010 to January 2013 was $78,842.21.
