Department of Defense personnel spent more than $1 million at casinos and strip clubs on government credit cards in one year, a Pentagon audit by the DOD Inspector General has revealed. (Tweet this)
Civilian and military employees racked up the vast majority of those charges—about $950,000—at casinos from July 2013 to June 2014. They charged roughly $96,000 at strip clubs.
Using the cards did not violate laws because the cardholders paid their "personal" expenses, DOD officials told NBC News. Taxpayer dollars were not spent in the transactions, officials said.
However, the charges did run foul of some standards for the agency. Administrative action has been taken against 364 cardholders, and most have gone through "counseling" for card use.
Officials could not confirm to NBC if any of the cardholders lost their jobs.
