Human Rights Commission Member Busted Using State Credit Card For Personal Use

[The Olympian] A state Human Rights Commission member quit after an investigation showed misuse of a state-issued credit card and rental cars.

State auditors investigating a whistleblower complaint found that commissioner Jerry Hebert of Poulsbo made $4,764 in purchases with a state-issued credit card.

But only $939 of it was deemed reimbursable and proper use of the card. Hebert exceeded credit limits, and he failed to pay off balances on time, auditors said.

Hebert disputed several audit findings.

He told auditors most of the expenses were for food at focus-group meetings he held with minority groups the commission is trying to assist.
