State House Member Tyrone Ellis (D-Starkville) received a travel voucher from the Billy McCoy (D-Rienzi) led House of Representatives to attend the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado next week for “educational” purposes. These expenditures are apparently approved by the House Management Committee chaired by Rep. J. P. Compretta (D – Bay St. Louis).

The stated purpose of the trip was “educational”. Ironically, they misspelled “Colorada”.

No word as to whether or not an investigation will be launched into the origins of the expenditure.
