FLINT, Mich. - Career training or time in the sun on your dime?

That’s the question Genesee County Clerk John Gleason is asking after county officials took a more than $25,000 trip to Walt Disney World.

We found tens of thousands of dollars spent on out of town trips for training and conferences, but Gleason tells us that number is really in the 6 digits.

This is a serious story that involves allegations of a misuse of your tax dollars, but admittedly the video you will soon see is funny.
