Top Trump official Seema Verma 'abused' government rules by spending $3.5 million in taxpayer money
"Congress did not intend for taxpayer dollars to be spent on handpicked communications consultants used to promote Administrator Verma's public profile and personal brand," Democratic Reps. Frank Pallone and Carolyn Maloney and Sens. Ron Wyden and Patty Murray said in a joint statement to Politico. "Administrator Verma has shown reckless disregard for the public's trust. We believe she should personally reimburse the taxpayers for these inappropriate expenditures."
