California Democrat Adam Schiff just sounded off on Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s blossoming spending scandal.
A work order from Zinke’s office surfaced, documenting a $139,000 line item labeled, simply, “Secretary’s Door.” Assuming this isn’t book cooking to cover up some nefarious dealings, it’s pretty ridiculous to install a $139,000 door.
Referencing repeated spending scandals peppering the Trump administration since its inception, Schiff fired off this tweet.
What a waste. Just think how many dining sets you could have bought or private jets you could have chartered with that money. https://t.co/tUgg9BbcHi

This comes just days after reports surfaced that Ben Carson’s office in Housing and Urban Development had purchased a $31,000 dining room set.
Zinke’s door isn’t even the first outrageous expense incurred by his office. Last year, he spent $53,000 on helicopter rides.
It makes sense that no one in the Interior Department is willing to comment on this, considering Tom Price was forced to resign last year from his role as the head of Health and Human Services. This, after he racked up nearly a million dollars at taxpayers’ expense traveling on private jets.
This administration isn’t even trying to hide its corrupt spending practices at taxpayer expense. The fact that all of these egregious purchases aren’t made while the offenders are twirling their mustaches and tying a girl to some train tracks is shocking. Although, good luck finding suitable train tracks to tie a girl down to without that trillion dollar infrastructure package we were promised.
