The Iowa Republican: Where was Governor Culver during filmgate?
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
By Rep. Rod Roberts ... Over the past week Iowans have discovered how
some self-interested film producers exploited a state program that was
intended to boost the state's economy. Film producers claimed tax
credits for purchasing expensive luxury vehicles, such as Mercedes and
Range Rovers. Some film producers inflated their production costs to
receive larger-than-deserved tax credits, while others didn't even
bother to provide receipts for their purchases to substantiate their
tax-credit claims. The State Auditor and Attorney General are only
beginning to learn about the scope and extent of this egregious tax
fraud, and I am anxious to hear the conclusions of their
investigations so Iowans can get to the bottom of what went wrong.
