I love Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and was sad when he announced that he would not run for reelection.
But the irony of him voting for the disgusting omnibus bill while calling out Interior Secretary Zinke for “overspending” on an office door is too much.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Republican head of a government oversight panel in Congress asked U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke this week to provide details on a contract to replace doors in his office that initially ran to $139,000, one of several inquiries by lawmakers of spending by Trump administration officials.
In a letter dated March 22 and seen by Reuters, U.S. House of Representatives oversight committee chairman Trey Gowdy asked Zinke to brief him on the need to replace the doors and provide details on the acquisition process, bidding and receipts.
Those following the recent budget process will note that Gowdy voted FOR HR1625, the “Omnibus” spending bill loaded with pork, which will add trillions to the national debt.
