Good Grief, It Just Doesn’t Stop … IRS Credit Cards Used for Pornography, Wine, Expensive Luncheon, Romance Novels and Diet pills
Isn’t this special … IRS credit cared used for Internet porn. I hope they kept the receipts.
From FOX News, add Internet porn, romance novels, wine and diet pills to the inappropriate spending down by IRS employees. Personally, they should all be charged with theft, the theft of American tax payer dollars. As reported at Breitbart.com, the majority of those purchases were legitimate. However, the IG report said the IRS has inadequate controls to prevent inappropriate purchases. Wow really? And I would have thought that the 23,994 refund checks totaling $46,378,040 sent to the same address in Atlanta or the IRS was spending $3500 a night on hotel rooms and pending $4,000,0000 at conferences was the first sign of no controls, let alone inadequate.
Does the IRS have any controls?
Poor oversight by the Internal Revenue Service allowed workers to use agency credit cards to buy wine for an expensive luncheon, dorky swag for managers’ meetings and, for one employee, romance novels and diet pills, an agency watchdog said Tuesday.
Two IRS credit cards were used to buy online pornography, though the employees said the cards were stolen. One of the workers reported five agency credit cards lost or stolen.
IRS employees used agency credit cards to make more than 273,000 purchases totaling nearly $108 million in 2010 and 2011, according to the report by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.
The vast majority of those purchases were legitimate, the report said. However, the report said the IRS has inadequate controls to prevent inappropriate purchases.
