Tom Price’s resignation may feel like a lifetime ago, but it’s worth following up on his expenses scandal.
“Our rigorous review of former HHS Secretary Price’s use of chartered, military, and commercial aircraft found that 20 out of 21 trips did not comply with applicable federal regulations and HHS policies and procedures, resulting in waste of at least $341,000 in federal funds,” Tesia Williams, a spokeswoman for the inspector general’s office, said in a statement. “We recommend the Office of the Secretary review the lack of compliance with federal requirements and determine appropriate actions to recoup the travel costs.”
I expect the 16 odd investigations into Pruitt will largely come to similar conclusions. Abuse of office for personal gain.
Be a shame if they didn’t recoup some of the money though.
Yeah, but this is nothing compared to the corruption in the Obama administration. I’ve been assured that Obama’s cronies were way worst.
Seriously, they should sue and get their money back for such blatant fraud and ripping off of the tax payer. Apparently Trumpsters have no issue wasting $350k if their tax money for Trumps cronies to jet around.
