Abuses government credit card


Jones, a federal employee, costs taxpayers $12,000 for his grocery, cable, and hotel bills. Because of the government shut down, there were no checks and balances to prevent this kind of fraud from happening. Jones is now charged for two felonies and two misdemeanors and will spend nine years in prison. Senator Brown comments:

Checks and Balances weren’t in place because the government was shut down.
