NEW: PA Governor’s Aide Criticized for Spending too Much Time in Rhode Island

Thursday, December 13, 2012

 

Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Public Welfare is coming under fire for taking too many taxpayer-backed trips to his home in Rhode Island, according to a report in the Pocono Record.

Gary Alexander, who served as Secretary of Health and Human Services under former Governor Donald Carcieri, reportedly spent more than $4,700 making dozens of trips between Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

Alexander was criticized last year when he published a report stating Rhode Island’s Global Medicaid Waiver saved the state $110 million over the course of 18 months. The Department of Human Services disputed those numbers.
