Washington Blows Hurricane Money

The Government Accountability Office figures 16% of the disaster relief paid out after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had nothing to do with disaster relief -- well, maybe the divorce lawyer would count.

The Associated Press reports among the items purchased:
  • An all-inclusive, one-week Caribbean vacation in the Punta Cana resort in the Dominican Republic
  • Five season tickets to New Orleans Saints football games
  • Adult erotica products in Houston and ``Girls Gone Wild'' videos in Santa Monica, California
  • Dom Perignon champagne and other alcoholic beverages in San Antonio
  • A divorce lawyer's services in Houston.
