Maybe the Pentagons legendary $600 toilet seat was a bargain.
The personal bathroom used by the secretary of the Interior is so swanky that its renovation cost $222,000. No detail was overlooked: It has a $3,500 sub-zero refrigerator (hey, if youre going to have a fridge in the bathroom, it might as well be a good one) and a $689 faucet. At least the vintage tissue holder was cheap: just $65 bucks.
The renovation was done in 2007 under President George W. Bushs Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne, but is only now coming to light, thanks to the dogged reporting by ABC News Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV, which first filed a Freedom of Information Act request on the renovation four years ago.
The renovations were the subject of an internal audit by the General Services Administration, which has responsibility for most federal government properties.

The media never digs to find a scandal involving a democrat.
Well if it saves one life of someone defecating in the subway, it may be money well spent!
Reading headlines, my reaction was — strange this sounds like a negative against obama adm. not usual media’s m o.
Didn’t take long to get over the shock.....
This is a terrible thing when a Republican does it.
When a Democrat does it, it’s called “keepin’ it real.”
Go WSB! A four year investigation for bathroom renovations and no investigations of Obama and corrupt cronies.
Indeed the MSM said nothing of Obama’s $7 million vacations.
i’m patiently waiting for Obama to misstep with one of his MSM stepchildren that he’s close to (like ABC). Say an affiliate in DC that’s aware of some of his dark secrets he hasn’t shared with the American people. I’m hoping he will piss them off so bad there will be a tell-all session for several weeks or months. That would be his end and I can see him doing something like this if he doesn’t heed some of their demands because hes above them now; his head getting so big believing his own hype about how great he is backfiring big time...
