The Internal Revenue Service is already on trial for applying special scrutiny to conservative groups' applications for tax exempt status. Now an individual IRS worker is facing a possible 10-year prison sentence for allegedly using her government credit card to go on shopping binges at Amazon.
Yetunde Oseni, 37, a secretary at an IRS office in Lanham, Md., was given an IRS credit card in mid-2009, according to a U.S. District Court felony complaint that was reported by The Smoking Gun. She then allegedly used the card to buy an array of eccentric purchases online, including stretch leggings, a Hello Kitty cosmetic set, two plus-size trench coats, a chocolate fondue fountain, Omaha Steaks, "and other items not used by the IRS," the complaint states. In May, she was charged with embezzling government funds.
