Pentagon expenses scandal on casino & strip club visits

A major scandal could be ready to erupt in Washington after the Pentagon’s Inspector General was called in to investigate whether US military staff had used their official expenses account to pay for casino visits and strip club bills amounting to almost $1 million.

In May of this year, the Pentagon watchdog issued a report that Defence Department employees spent $952,258 at casinos and another $96,576 at “adult entertainment establishments.”

In September the Senate Armed Services Committee asked the Inspector General’s Office to make a full investigation into those expenses.

“Our objective is to determine whether (Defence Department) cardholders who used government travel cards at casinos and adult entertainment establishments for personal use sought or received reimbursement for the charges,” the Senate Armed Services Committee said in a memo to the Inspector General.
