USA: Health Minister Price resigns due to travel scandal – Politics

Saturday, September 30th, 2017 | bitcoin updates


Because of a scandal for excessive travel costs, US health minister Tom Price has resigned. The minister had offered his resignation and US President Donald Trump accepted it, said Trumps spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday in Washington. Price had been criticized because he had used private machines instead of much cheaper scheduled aircrafts. According to the insider magazine "Politico", Price has been using at least 26 chartering machines for taxpayers' expenses since taking office. The total cost of these flights is therefore 400,000 dollars (340,000 euros). It is true that these were trips in connection with his government. However, some of the routes included a magazine where the price houses, family or friends. Previously, other ministers had already left the government. Price had initially defended his travels as lawful. A few days ago, however, he announced that he would waive the use of chartering machines until the completion of an internal investigation of his department. The regulations for US government workers are that they should use scheduled airplanes as far as they are available for the desired date. On Thursday, Price had finally announced the reimbursement of his flight costs from his private assets. Since Trumps took office in January, some members of his government team have already taken their hat, including his security adviser Michael Flynn and staff chief Reince Preibus. (AFP)
