It's a long one and has some quite unbelievable detailing of misuse of taxpayer money in it. Go here: https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/02/bring-back-the-golden-fleece.php
Back in the days when some Democrats actually cared about government waste, Senator William Proxmire of Wisconsin became famous for his "Golden Fleece” award, which exposed absurd federal spending boondoggles. Since then, the government’s hemorrhaging of our tax dollars has only gotten worse.
The same thing is going on at the state level. Democrats consider all spending, no matter how stupid, to be an "investment” and therefore desirable. My home state of Minnesota is even worse than most, which is why our State Arts Board hands out an unbelievable amount of money to "artists” for just about anything. In 2018, the Arts Board gave Jim Denomie a $10,000 grant:
Denomie will create a series of large paintings in response to Standing Rock and other contemporary events from a Native American perspective.
"Standing Rock” refers to left-wing protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, which begins in the Bakken oil fields of North Dakota and continues through South Dakota and Iowa to a terminal in Illinois. The pipeline is being built because people need oil. The protests occurred because…I’m really not sure why. Maybe because protesters were paid by leftist and "green” interests? I don’t know.
