WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Justice Department has been up to no good.
Audits by the U.S, House Judiciary Committee to the Justice Department have revealed some squandering of tax dollars. Some of the committee’s charges include: $11 million to fly the attorney general and FBI director on private flights, $600,000 more for the department to organize five conferences and $10,000 for a pizza party for Connecticut police – must have been double meat.
“The A.G. (attorney general) is supposed to fly on secure means of transportation and that’s in accordance with a government-wide policy,” said Lee Lofthus, assistant attorney general.
But members of the department did not answer questions about the overpriced food and drinks, like spending $12 dollars per cup of coffee.
