Summary:

When the Federal Protective Services office moved from the General Services Administration (GSA) to the newly-forming Department of Homeland Security (DHS), 21 employees took advantage of the transition to use government credit cards for unapproved purchases, according to documents obtained from the inspector general (IG) of the GSA. The Washington Times reported that clothing, gold coins, televisions, gym memberships, and college tuition payments were paid for without authorization or justification.
