This smells like a political hit job.

Ofcourse it is. In some areas/cities no hotel rates are as low as the per diem rate allowed by government. I’m sure in those cases when paying the higher rate is necessary one only needs to justify the higher rate. The fact that he was reimbursed negates these charges. The time to challenge an expense account submission is when submitted, not years later.

That's true, and I'd forgotten that. I work for the City of Seattle, and that is exactly the policy. In fact, I think they maintain a list of cities where the standard per diem can be exceeded.
