    Interior Secretary's $222,000 Bathroom

    Interior Secretary's $222,000 Bathroom | ABC News - Yahoo!

    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 you're 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. Bush's 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.
    This fiscal Conservative probably thought he was the Secretary of Interior Decorating.

    I'm trying to figure out just how they get $222,000 when the numbers they provide are - miniscule - in comparison.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    It costs for the president to travel anywhere - holiday or not . . . paying for security, people's salaries and the functioning use of air force one isn't the same as building air force one - still absurd but different.

    And wait til you hear how much money he spent on advertising to rope his way into office again

    Simple: Arrogance of the left.
