Description: It's blatantly hypocritical for them to level this charge when Matt Blunt wakes up every day and uses half a dozen state vehicles to travel to political and public events.

Missouri Highway Patrol spokesman Timothy Hull said the Highway Patrol is required by Missouri statute to provide secrurity to the Governor and his family no matter where he goes.
