It works out to less than .10 cents for every taxpayer. Oooh, big breaking news by the outfit that DOES cost the taxpayers a fortune to run.

what is all this right wing hatred? Are you so narrow as to not bother with anyone who feels differently than you?
Brenda Martin was convicted in a court of law(dubious court no doubt), she is now a convicted criminal, it sounds like she played the shell game here too.
So twitty; would you have all prisoners set free? Save maybe for the ones who confess, ...ah right the evil police must have coerced those statments.
You little feathered brain, are an ongoing joke.

"if the evidence against her says she is guilty"
The evidence also supposedly said David Milgaard was guilty.
If right wingers had have had their way he would have been executed instead of wasting tax dollars keeping him in prison for a murder he did not do
Would you like more names of people who did the time but not the crime?

How much you wanna bet she knew?
Didn't seem to bother her until, say, a couple years ago.
What don't you people get about traveling to other parts of the world?
Other countries have their own laws and ways of conducting themselves (some better than others), and when you go there, you must conduct YOURSELF accordingly, IOW they don't have to adapt to YOU.
If our legal system reviews the evidence and finds she was indeed guilty of participating in fraud in Mexico, I hope she is held accountable for the expenditure of our tax dollars.
I suspect she knew about, participated in, and profited from her former employer's criminal enterprise.

Are you aware of a few months ago, a man fell from a 2nd story building in Mexico, and despite eyewitness reports, they said he was drunk and fell?
Are you remotely aware of how corrupt it is there?
