They had the money, they simply used it elsewhere

“People paid the gas tax assuming that money was going to roads and bridges and $4.2 billion was diverted and it’s inexcusable,” former Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said.


That’s pretty much the Leftist thing, innit? Live on the legacy of the past and let it decay  while spending money on Causes….


They failed to properly fund police departments, so they took gas tax money to pay for that ’cause they needed to have some police presence……..Then they chose not to fund the bridge repair ’cause the money had been diverted.

(Note, the bridge wasn’t the property of the state, but rather the city of Pittsburgh,….but the grants that could have been used for the bridge repair vanished as the money was spent elsewhere)
