Pentagon Staff Caught Buying Porn With Official Credit Cards


Pentagon Staff Caught Buying Porn With Official Credit Cards

An embarrassing leak this morning from a yet to be released GAO report shows that Pentagon employees used their government issued credit cards to pay for highly inappropriate expenses. The charges appear to be attempts at hiding personal spending on gambling and adult websites from their spouses.

The Inspector General's report, which has not been made public, shows workers racked up nearly a million dollars in gambling charges and spent $96,576 at "adult entertainment establishments.". Given the high level of spend in the DOD the charges are more of an embarrassment than a widespread problem, although the practice does appear to have been commonplace in certain departments.

"Clearly the behavior displayed by these individuals neither comports with our values nor represents the good service of the vast majority of or service members or DOD Civilians," an unnamed official told news outlet CNN.

"While any misuse of the card is taken seriously, the amount of this misuse is extremely small given the size and scope of the Department of Defense travel charge card program." the official went on say.

No money was found to be taken from the government, with employees paying back the charges at the end of the month. The cards are issued to staff for travel and other related business expenses.

Most of the offenders have been subject to discipline already.
