Doddville Mayor Ken Mitchell charged a lot more than meals and mileage to his government credit card.

Gotcha! has received spending records from Mitchell’s Doddville-issued credit card, and they include more than $400 in purchases to a number of pornographic websites.  It appears Doddville taxpayers have unknowingly footed the bill for Mitchell’s fetishes dating back to February YR-03.

Officially, Doddville issues credit cards to its city council members and the mayor for pre-approved travel and city business-related expenses.  City Auditor Tony Tarrant is supposed to monitor charges to city credit cards, but an anonymous source tells Gotcha! that Tarrant has known about Mitchell’s illicit spending for months and has done nothing about it.

Both Mitchell and Tarrant refused to speak to Gotcha! about the misconduct, hiding behind “No comment.”

But Gotcha!’s records revelation is no doubt a stain on Mitchell’s public image. Mitchell is an active member of the Doddville United Methodist Church and an outspoken opponent of the “vices” of alcohol, drugs, and pornography. For now, Doddville Methodist Pastor Alan Shaw said he stands by Mitchell and wants to wait for all of the facts to come out before jumping to conclusions.

My conclusion is Mitchell should have added hypocrisy to that list of vices. Gotcha! will have more on this story as it develops.
