Mrs. O’Leary’s Cash Cow

Just because no one ever called you on it didn’t mean it was okay to begin with.

The head of the Smithsonian Latino Center resigned after an investigation found she abused her expense account to fund her extravagant use of spas, luxury hotels and frequent limousine rides, according to a report released by the institution.
Pilar O’Leary, 39, billed the nonprofit museum complex for “extravagant” and “lavish travel expenses,” the Smithsonian Institution inspector general found. In one case, she charged the Smithsonian for a limo she took across the National Mall from one Smithsonian building to another, according to the report, which was released Monday.
…In statements attached to the report, O’Leary said she relied on authorizations from former Deputy Secretary Sheila Burke for her expenses and was never questioned.

I’m guessing they were assuming you were a ‘responsible’ adult.

    “Smithsonian Latino Center”
    What in Hades would be featured in there? The history of sweet low-riders and racy soap operas and variety shows?
