After I posted Larry Seabrook’s “lazy asses” comments earlier, a reader brought to my attention the following fact about the desk Seabrook purchased with his campaign funds:
It was bought from Tri County Office Furniture in Mt. Vernon, costing more than $1,200. (There are two invoices from Tri County — one for $1,108, and the other for $150.)
I just called Tri County’s Mt. Vernon office and asked if they had desks in the $1,100-$1,200 price range. "We have furniture in all price ranges," I was told.
Could I get, say, a custom-made desk for that price?
"Custom-made and laminated," the guy said.
