Baton Rouge City Court Judge Yvette Alexander, who already has billed taxpayers for trips to Hawaii, Jamaica and Italy, is on her way to Morocco, where she will stay in five-star hotels while attending a judicial conference.
The cost of the 5,000-mile excursion is at least $2,898 and taxpayers will foot the bill.

A five-star hotel in Morocco....generally means you won’t get food poisoning, bad water, or be robbed. There’ll be at least two or three armed guys on the premises for ensuring nothing bad happens to you. As long as you stay on the hotel grounds....things will be generally Ok. For a person sitting in Baton Rouge...this means you have to fly from BR to ATL or Dallas...then switch to a airline flying into Spain. You will sit for four to six hours at the Spanish airport, before you get onto an airline flying into Morocco. Between the bag drag and bus ride out to your airport, and all the travel involved....you will have spent roughly twenty-four to thirty hours in some travel status. If that pleases you...fine. I can’t think of any positive reason for myself to take such a trip. Been there....done that, and it’s not fun.
“Judge” Yevette sounds like she went to the same, ahem, school as the mooch.
I guess the folk in baton rogue don’t care.

They probably don’t see a problem with Rangeling a few freebies from The Man.

Yvette M. Alexander practiced law for 16 years before becoming Judge for Division D of Baton Rouge City Court in 1995.
“Practicing law”, not to be confused with private practice - on the State’s payroll entire career before becoming a city judge. IOW, she’s owed this and more.
