St. Louis Post-Dispatch investigated the annual Fourth of July celebrations of the VP Fair. The group operated on a $4.6 million budget, some of that tax money, but refused to show how the money was allocated. The fair's revenue increased dramatically due to the success of the event which included the sale of television rights. Numerous conflict of interest situations were present, with fair directors winning contracts and work. Additionally, a second associate organization was established to keep certain funds separate.
