State Mishandled Your Money

The News & Observer

The state mishandled the seemingly easy task of buying paper clips, pencils and other supplies, a judge ruled Friday.

After four days of testimony, including a focus on ethics in government, Administrative Law Judge Beecher "Gus" Gray said the state's handling of its office supplies contract appeared unethical and was unfair.

The state, Gray said, "should get the taxpayers the best deal it can," but didn't do that in this case.

Does it surprise you? Why?
