Virginia Receives $2.8M in Inaugural Expenses
More than seven months after President Obama's inauguration, the federal government finally has cut Virginia a check for some of its expenses.
Virginia and some localities spent $5.7 million on the inauguration, but the state only received $2.8 million -- the maximum allowed, according to Gordon Hickey, Gov. Tim Kaine's spokesman.
Expect Republicans to ask Kaine, also chairman of the Democratic National Committee, why the state won't be receiving a full reimbursement.
Back in January, they accused him of using tax dollars for his friend's inauguration when the administration directed almost $1 million to offer free bus service on Inauguration Day.
