Homeland Security Living in Lap of Luxury

Recently, TOAST recieved news that the Department of Homeland Security was living in the lap of luxury last March at the Cincinnatian Hotel at $250 per night per person. This week the Department of Homeland Security is in town again and so I called Washington D.C. DHS Department of Grants and Funding for verification if this did in fact happen on the dates of March 8th and 9th of 2006 and if DHS is going to be living in the lap of luxury again when they come to town this week.

I was forwarded to Tracy Trautman. I guess she is the person that oversees all funding for DHS in the United States. I wanted to inquirer and thought it best that all be done through email. That's when she hung up on me.

How crude of The Department of Homeland Security to be cutting funds in Ohio. Ohio went from 77.8 million last year to 41 million this year. Let's not forget to mention that Cincinnati Ohio had major cuts also in funding.

And now we see why... It's something that Tracy Trautman of DHS doesn't want to talk about. DHS officials sleeping at the Cincinnatian Hotel. Is it true and at $254 a night? Where are they staying this week? Are they back at the Cincinnatian Hotel? How much is this going to cost the taxpayers of Cincinnati?

Seems like these are questions that Tracey Trautman of Homeland Security doesn't want us asking in Cincinnati. Especially when it comes to funding, hotels, and sleeping at the Cincinnatian.

    Pretty typical, I'd say. "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!!" Takes balls, (but not much political savvy) to cut homeland security funding for major cities, and yet allow low level bureaucrats like this to travel like a celebrity. By the way, The Cincinnatian Hotel usually hosts presidents, foreign leaders and CEO's. How did a DHS nobody arrange a stay there?

    Excellent work, TOASTMASTER. Keep the heat on these kind of weasels who think they are entitled to drink at the public taxpayers trough.
