CNN reports Alabama is abusing BP oil spill money. Above, a state rep defends plans to spend beach restoration funds on building a new convention center and tourist attractions on the beach, above. 
Alabama is spending just 8.5% on restoring beaches and marine ecosystems. Louisiana, for comparison, is spending 100% of the BP penalties on wetland, wildlife, marshes, and other coastal restoration. Florida is spending 90% on restoration.
Solid reporting @CNN’s OutFront. 

There’s a reason everyone hates you, Alabama.

Would be not at all surprised if Mississippi is up to some similar bullshit

Governments spend a great deal of money on public services, effectively and properly
News outlets: “Someone (just this one asshole!) in government is wasting your money!”
Cue unbridled outrage from self-righteous citizens who think all government spending is bogus
We elect Tea Party members and cut taxes and underfund infrastructure and let the environment go to shit
We die.
