The Big Spenders: Holder & Co.

Not only does Holder staff the joint with Lefty ideologues; the Lefties then eat US out of house and home.

U.S. Justice Department agencies spent too much for food at conferences, in one case serving $16 muffins and in another dishing out beef Wellington appetizers that cost $7.32 per serving, an audit found. 

...The inspector general reviewed a sample of 10 Justice Department conferences held between October 2007 and September 2009 at a cost of $4.4 million. The Justice Department spent $73.3 million on conferences in fiscal 2009, compared with $47.8 million a year earlier, according to the report. 

...The new report found that agencies were able to “circumvent meal and refreshment cost limits” when conferences were planned under cooperative agreements, a type of funding awarded by a Justice Department agency. 

Justice Department agencies “did not adequately attempt to minimize conference costs as required by federal and DOJ guidelines,” the report said.

No cake?  Oh, yah, I forgot.  That's for us to eat.

To be fair, part, if not most, came from the AG's from the Bush empire.
It would be interesting to see what it is like now.
