A Farmer's dilemma

This news item out of Kentucky caught my eye when it came over the Ag News feed on my other blog.

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer will have a portion of his paycheck docked for back taxes after neglecting to report years worth of personal mileage on state-owned vehicles.

Bill Clary, a spokesman for the Department of Agriculture, said Wednesday that Farmer relied on bad advice from the department's executive team when he failed to track personal mileage during his first term in office.

Despite policy revisions in 2008, Farmer's personal mileage continued to go unreported because of a clerical blunder in the department, he said.

I don't know a thing about the guy's troubles. But what a name for an ag commissioner.
