The Justice Department

An internal audit conducted by the U.S. Justice Department in Washington, found that he spent too much money on food and drink for the conferences.

Among the most expensive sandwich rolls were $ 16 each, cups of coffee for more than $ 8 and cookies and brownies for about $ 10 each.

Agency officials said they had taken steps to address the problem and that the expense was down at conferences in the first six months of this year.
