Taxpayers financed Justice officials romantic travel
First there were $16 muffins and $8 cups of coffee; then came emails suggesting that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. fudged the truth about Operation Fast and Furious; and now its a Justice Department official using taxpayer funds to facilitate a physical relationship with a woman in Florida.
And the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee wants to know why the department did not take stronger action against the official, then a supervisor in the Civil Rights Division, after his misuse of funds was discovered.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, in a Sept. 28 letter, asked Mr. Holder to explain why the supervisor, Darryl Foster, apparently did not have to reimburse the government for money he spent on trips to meet with the Miami woman, including hotels and rental cars.
He said expenses for the trips were paid for by taxpayers even on days he was not working and the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) found that in late 2007 or early 2008, Mr. Foster began extending his work travel to Miami to meet with the unidentified woman.
On another occasion, Mr. Grassley said Mr. Foster flew a male friend from the U.S. Virgin Islands to Las Vegas to meet largely for recreational purposes. He said taxpayers also picked up that tab, including airfare, hotel costs and rental car.
Mr. Grassley said email correspondence between Mr. Foster and the unidentified male said such things as, Make sure you leave me some golf time!! and Thought we were going to the Grand Canyon on Saturday??

Darryl Foster’s Summary
Currently I supervise the Fair Housing Testing Program for the Department of Justice. We investigate and conduct tests of housing providers to ensure their compliance with the Fair Housing Act (FHA), the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) and other Federal Civil Rights laws.

LOL...more BIG Government
....and also the major reason why the perp got away with this crap.
Imagine if a year after the Watergate break ins, the WaPo had muzzled W&B, and had only reported it in the context of, “a nothing third-rate burglary not worth mentioning.”
Nobody was murdered at or over Watergate. The F&F body count is already over 200, mostly Mexicans.
I’ll calm down when all involved parties are rotting in jail. Until then NO.
Holder may have had fingers in Fast and Furious for years
