Dem. Rep Giggles at Outrageousness of IRS Spending
House Oversight Committee ranking member Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) couldn’t contain himself when talking about the IRS’s lavish spending on conferences and training, including a “ridiculous” Star Trek-parody video made by the agency.
“I swear to god, I have looked at that video over and over again, and I swear I do not see the redeeming value,” Cummings said, followed by a chuckle. “I was up at 3 o’clock this morning watching it, because I was trying to get to the redeeming value. Couldn’t get there. I tried hard at it.”
