Obama Interior Secretaries Spent $1M on Non-Commercial Travel

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is under fire for spending some $73,000 over the first eight months of the Trump administration on non-commercial travel.

That actually puts him below the pace of such spending by Barack Obama’s Interior Secretaries, who spent about $1 million over seven years.

So why didn’t we hear about it then? Because with Barack Obama now gone and a Republican in office, the press has gotten excited again about investigative reporting, that’s why.

According to CNN:

Just over $971,000 was spent on non-commercial travel for interior secretaries in the Obama administration during a seven-year period, according to records obtained by CNN.

That would include travel on both chartered planes as well as on Interior Department aircraft.

The Interior Department submitted records detailing the non-commercial travel of former secretaries Ken Salazar and Sally Jewell to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, saying $971,634 was spent on 81 trips. It came as part of a request to various Cabinet departments for their non-commercial travel records following recent controversy over Cabinet secretaries’ travel.

The non-commercial travel for current Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has so far cost $72,849 on six trips since he took office in March.

Props to CNN for doing a little journalism.
