Department of Defense workers have spent nearly $100,000 at strip clubs and almost $1 million at casinos using government credit cards and the Pentagon has refused to discipline!
What will they think of next? Between the Secret Service, the FBI, and now the Pentagon, is there any common sense left in Washington DC?
The atrocity was released Tuesday in a new report from the Pentagon.
Time Magazine reports:
The report from the Department of Defense’s inspector general found that management did not take the correct course of action after finding out their workers used government credit cards for non-work related purposes.
“DoD management did not take appropriate action when notified that cardholders potentially misused their travel card at casinos and adult entertainment establishments,” the report said. “Specifically, DoD management and travel card officials did not perform adequate reviews for the cardholders reviewed and did not take action to eliminate additional misuse.”Department of Defense workers spent nearly $100,000 at strip clubs and “adult entertainment establishments,” and almost $1 million at casinos, according to the report, which cited a May 2015 audit. At the request of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, the inspector general further investigated the matter.
According to the report, out of a sample of 30 government cardholders, 22 sought and received reimbursements on 131 vouchers totaling $8,544. Furthermore, officials did not consider the “security implications of improper personal use of the travel card,” the report found.
Because the spending was allowed, the Department of Defense had less money available for work-related travel expenses and experienced potential national security vulnerabilities.
The problem with all of these continuous scandals is that it seems to always come back to one place: National Security Compromised!
Barack Obama and his inept administration has continued to make our country vulnerable to security threats! When does it stop?
The Pentagon has some serious splainin’ to do!
