    This probably just the tip of the iceberg. Arkansas’ governor seems to prefer to cover up a lot of places that get money and no one is investigating how much of out taxpayer contributions are wasted. A few years ago, I wrote an FOIA requesting an accounting for all expenditures for non-citizens paid for from Arkansas Tax dollars. When they turned down my FOIA I tried to raise funding to cover the legal expenses and could only raise 4% of what we needed so I returned what we received to those who contributed. SAD.
