Connie Morris: Going Out in Style

According to The Wichita Eagle, Connie Morris plans to go out in style:
Taxpayers will pay for outgoing State Board of Education member Connie Morris to take two trips weeks before she leaves office.

Morris, a Republican from St. Francis, plans to travel to Bloomington, Minn., in October and Washington, D.C., Dec. 16-23, two weeks before her term expires.

According to the Eagle, Morris' trip to Minnesota is to attend a conference for a group called EdWatch, Education for a FREE nation.

The conference will feature speakers on subjects such as how international baccalaureate undermines U.S. citizenship; how mental health screening affects gun ownership rights [just because you're nuts doesn't mean you shouldn't have a gun -- preferably an automatic].

The Edwatch website says:

Connie's last road trip created quite a stir with the lavish accomodations -- some $339 a night -- she booked for herself in Miami
