The Little Grifts

I admit I don't even know why $31,000 dining set is even a story, but it's always the "cover ups" that get you in trouble.

Washington (CNN)Newly released emails cast doubt on claims by Secretary Ben Carson and his spokesman that he had little or no involvement in the purchase of a $31,000 furniture set for his Department of Housing and Urban Development dining.

I will say that anyone appointed to a big important job whose first thought is "let me redecorate" (whatever the protocol) should not be appointed to a big important job. Though I do think this would exclude just about everybody who gets these appointments.
