ACCOUNTABILITY IS FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE: California parks director resigns amid scandal. “State Parks Director Ruth Coleman resigned this morning and her second in command has been fired after officials learned the department has been sitting on nearly $54 million in surplus money for as long as 12 years. The moves come in the wake of a scandal, revealed by The Bee on Sunday, in which a deputy director at State Parks carried out a secret vacation buyout program for employees at department headquarters last year. That buyout cost the state more than $271,000.”
Hey, it’s not your money, peasants. It’s theirs.
