Morris Junket Not Playing Well in Kansas
"Morris, a conservative Republican, charged taxpayers for six nights in a $339-a-night room in Miami Beach's lavish Fontainebleau Resort. She failed to book a room for the hotel's convention rate of $167, or to take a room a couple of blocks away for $150 or less.
"So much for fiscal conservatism.
"Even more astonishing was her reason for taking a $339 room, more than some rural, western Kansans pay for a month's rent: She didn't want to walk to the meetings...
"Morris' insensitive views are nothing new. Add in her irresponsible spending, and it's clear she's ill suited to make sound decisions regarding education in Kansas."
