Is this really about ripping off taxpayers?

He looks like such a nice guy, but is he ripping off the public? That's the claim made about North Carolina Governor Mike Easley in the Charlotte Observer. The state spent $61,000 for daily chauffeured Mercedes rides for the governor and his wife.  Is this reasonable for state taxpayers to cover? And how many chauffeured trips are they talking about? The point here is that chauffeured rides are being mentioned in the newspapers regularly these days as an example of misspending of tax funds. That is not good for the industry - keep it in mind as another topic for explaining the positive points on why elected officials and government agency managers are making a smart, effective move using chauffeured transportation.
