    Ben Carson really is a fool.

    Carson has $31K dining set in his office, paid for by taxpayers

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development used $31,000 to purchase a custom hardwood table, chairs and a hutch for Secretary Ben Carson’s office late last year, the New York Times reports.

    The agency didn't seek congressional approval for the purchase, even though federal law mandates authorization from lawmakers to "furnish or redecorate the office of a department head” if the total cost is over $5,000, per the Times.

    • What they're saying: A HUD spokesman told the Times that Carson “didn’t know the table had been purchased” but doesn't think it's overly expensive and has no plans to return it, the Times said.
    • Why it matters: Carson is also facing scrutiny and a probe by his agency’s inspector general into his son’s involvement in an agency-sponsored listening tour in Baltimore last year. Attorneys at the agency had reportedly warned both that it could be conflict of interest.

    So how did Obama's Illegal Aunt Zeiti manage to leap from over 30,000 legitimate people on Boston's public housing waiting list?

    Everyone that Lying Donald has 'hired' sees taxpayer's money as a limitless credit card to buy anything they can dream of and never have to pay a cent back to taxpayers.

    And Republicans in Congress? Quiet like mice with a boot on their neck.

    Yes and what would be the high pitched screaming by Repubicans if Democrats in the White House or the administration were doing this. They would be losing their shit. But all that is heard from Congress is silence.

    But they feel secure in their position because they feel that they deserve it or people won't notice. Just what the democrats thought prior to the last election...
