Wayne County sheriff defends lavish spending of campaign funds
DETROIT A new report is calling into question the campaign expenses of Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon -- thousands on nice hotels, Lions tickets, steak dinners and more. Michigan Campaign Finance Director said hes never seen campaign funds spent like this. He said he never lets anyone buy him dinner or golf, but dinners and golf are work related. It is incredible to me that people complain if I take for free, but complain when I pay for it, Napoleon said. I do not understand it.Its the law that campaign funds can pay for job-related sending, not personal items or services.
