U.S. Senator John Kennedy visited with Kevin & Bill on AMBR. Discussion turned to the controversy surrounding former LA State Police Superintendent Mike Edmonson, and the many perks he enjoyed while on the job. Among them, free housing, utilities, cable TV, dry cleaning and even free meals. Kennedy says these are fringe benefits, paid for by taxpayers and Edmonson should calculate those benefits’ fair market value and report them as income.
