Audit: Obama’s Dept. of Homeland Security Charged US Taxpayer $31,413 for Starbucks Visits

Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is bravely securing our national security… at Starbucks. A new audit of expenses finds that DHS employees have charged over $30 thousand dollars to the taxpayers at the highend coffee house.

The new audit by the DHS Inspector General found this waste earlier this month.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees used a government charge card to make purchases totaling $31,413 at Starbucks, according to an audit by the DHS Inspector General (IG).

The IG conducted the audit to see whether DHS implemented quality internal controls for the usage of the government charge card to prevent illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases.

The IG found that DHS did not have sufficient oversight over these purchases and as a result a moderate level of risk remains that DHS will not prevent illegal, improper or erroneous purchases in the future. From fiscal year 2012 to 2014, DHS made transactions totaling $400 million per year using this government card.

Of course, this sort of ripping off of the taxpayer happens in every single office of every single government agency and it all adds up to billions if fraud and waste.
