Clinton’s State Department spent $5.4 million on ‘crystal stemware’
Hillary Clinton’s State Department spent millions of taxpayer dollars on lavish goods and frivolous initiatives, such as a $5.4 million “no-bid contract for crystal stemware” and $630,000 to “increase Facebook likes on four State Department pages.”
These expenditures appeared in a 21-page memo, prepared by the Republican National Committee, that documented the financial mismanagement that occurred at the State Department under Clinton’s watch.
While wasteful spending is a familiar find at most federal agencies, Clinton presided over particularly expensive unsuccessful reconstruction efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Her agency spent more than $600 million on failed projects in those two countries alone, according to the RNC memo.
