I was recently visiting Florida and apparently there's some scandal going on there about a state representative allegedly abusing his Amex Gold card. The IRS even got an anonymous tip about it. He [allegedly] spent $170k in 2 years and that includes over $800 at Starbucks. I typed this in on Google and there was a local blog where someone said they saw him whip it out at a personal dinner and although from a distance they couldn't see if it was his personal card or not, they did confirm for a fact it was the American Express gold card.
I wonder how many politicians are ripping us off by charging up their government issued cards? I remember a few months back there was a post in the credit card fraud forum on here about all kinds of huge abuse by gov employees.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
