State Auditor Stacey Pickering said he purchased a recreational vehicle for his campaign in part so his family “could spend as much time together as we campaigned across the state” and it saved his campaign money on hotel rooms.
But his wife, as a columnist on the Disney Parks Moms Panel, wrote that after the family purchased an RV, “We now consider Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & campground our second home,” raising further questions of whether the RV is mainly for campaign or personal use.
Multiple sources have confirmed to The Clarion-Ledger that federal investigators are looking into the Pickering campaign’s purchase of a car, a recreational vehicle and a garage door, and into reimbursements for more than $135,000 of dollars in non-itemized travel to himself and others during off-years for campaigns and whether he reported or paid taxes on personal spending from campaign funds.
