WREG-TV3 recently suggested that some of our esteemed state legislators are not the conscientious custodians of your tax dollars they profess to be well, at least not when it comes to using the state's FedEx account. As it happens, state senator John "Stop or I'll Shoot" Ford, the worst offender according to Channel 3, has been using the state's FedEx account to conduct official business with such catalog stores as J. Crew and the notoriously extravagant Neiman Marcus. The station also claims that Ford has used the state's FedEx account to keep in contact with many of his constituents who also happen to be named Ford. And Ford's seemingly unstable ex-wife Tamara Mitchell Ford has also used the account to ship dozens of packages to out-of-state relatives as well as to officials in Alabama where she faced DUI charges. So Senator John Ford is a shady character not to be trusted with public money, huh? Yeah, right! And Michael Jackson is a homosexual pedophile. Oh, wait a minute ...
