Azeezaly Jaffer, the former vice president for public affairs and communications at the U.S. Postal Service, found himself in hot water after an inspector general report listed more than $46,000 in questionable spending and allegations of sexual harassment and other improper conduct, according to a USA Today report.
Jaffer’s profligate spending included more than $8,200 at a hotel suite and nearly $3,500 on a steak dinner.
According to The Washington Post, Jaffer resigned 11 days after the IG’s report was released in June 2006, although he was still able to take a two-month paid vacation that summer. Following the revelations of Jaffer’s profligate spending, USPS issued new expense guidelines, directing employees not to spend more than $50 per person for dinner.
