Officials charge $332,000 on airport credit cards

Four officials at the Blue Grass Airport in Lexington have charged a combined $332,000 to their airport credit cards for expenses ranging from Hannah Montana tickets to video games and golf lessons.

The Lexington Herald-

Leader reported this week the charges were accrued during the last three years. Each of the three men earned annual salaries more than $135,000.

Charges also included tickets to sporting events, a visit to a strip club and other trips across the country. Airport credit cards were also used to by Christmas presents for co-workers, gasoline, dry-cleaning, car washes and meals at various local restaurants.

David Wescott, a hired airport spokesman, says it’s difficult to imagine how some of the expenses could be appropriate.
