Justice spent about $490,000 on food and beverages at the conferences — more than 10 percent of the $4.4 million total cost of the events.

Read the report..at one conference, the Department paid $5.57 per can of soda and $.65 PER OUNCE for coffee.

Kinda reminds me of all the crap that the Democrats heaped on the Kellogg, Brown and Root subsidiary of Halliburton for charging $45/case (less than $2/can) for soda delivered in Iraq. And in a war zone for, Christ’s sake.
