DHS Spending Questioned

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma - An Oklahoma Senator has released a report on wasteful spending of the Department of Homeland Security's money.

Senator Tom Coburn's report shows money was spent on things like a underwater robot in an area with little water.

There were also funds used to buy a "latrine on wheels" for Fort Worth and fish tank for the town of Seguin.

The money comes to states as part of a counter-terrorism program.

But according to coburn there aren't proper federal controls to monitor and prevent this kind of wasteful spending.
