Coming back from a trip, I heard that many current and past V.I. senators, took money for travel and other expenses and could not file the appropriate reports to validate those expenses.
This is called this the "taxpayer spigot." If you can't validate an expense, it only means you've taken money under false pretenses.
New York State Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. is being forced to repay the state $67,000 for this same thing, plus he is facing trial on corruption charges.
