Dept of Agriculture Barely Uses Over 1,100 Cars, Spending $6.2 Million on them

Audits are ‘fun’ for us taxpayers to find out how our money [1] is being spent:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) spent $6.2 million on cars the agency does not need, according to a new audit by the Office of Inspector General (OIG).

Due to poor monitoring of vehicle logs the USDA has thousands of cars that are underused. The audit also identified $1.2 million in questionable fuel purchases by employees.
