Missouri Republicans Waste $40,000 in Taxpayer Funds

Amidst the redistricting kerfluffle plaguing Missouri Republicans, where they've been bickering over which congressional boundaries would best protect their cronies while disenfranchising half the state's population, Post-Dispatch reporter Rebecca Berg made this interesting observation:
On Monday and Thursday, the House met for only a technical session, during which no floor debate takes place. The body then met for an unorthodox Friday session to take a quick vote on a revised redistricting map.

The total cost to taxpayers: nearly $40,000 for paying legislators' expenses for three days in which little public work was being done.
But remember, they really really really care about taxpayer money in the bottom of their hearts.
