An employee at the Housing and Urban Development Department used his government charge card to make nearly $12,000 in personal purchases for a few months back in 2013. HUD didn't tell the Office of Management and Budget about the violation because the Office of Inspector General hadn't yet confirmed if the transactions broke federal law. A typical investigation like this usually takes several months or years for the Inspector General to finish. Frank Rokosz is deputy assistant inspector general for audit at the Housing and Urban Development Department's OIG. He tells In Depth with Francis Rose that HUD shouldn't have waited.
