The Interior Department is shelling out nearly $139,000 for new doors in the office of Secretary Ryan Zinke - the latest example of lavish spending in the Trump administration.
The Associated Press first reported the expenditure, which it said was for three sets of double doors in Zinke's office.
Career officials ordered the door as "part of the decade-long modernization" of a building that dates to the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, according to a spokeswoman.
Although there is no doubt that the price sounds high, but she said that the preservation requirements and the new locks escalated the cost. Swift said Zinke agrees $139,000 is a lot of money for new doors.
Zinke is the third member of Trump's cabinet who has been questioned for lavish spending of taxpayer money, the second member in two weeks. "This is a flawless example of why the secretary believes we need to reform procurement processes".
The Interior Department spent about $139,000 for construction on an office door.
Ken Cook, president of the Environmental Working Group, said, "Taxpayer dollars don't grow on trees, but Mr. Zinke and his fellow grifters in the Trump administration repeatedly raid the federal treasury like it does".
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke was unaware of the contract before reporters started asking about it, according to his spokeswoman, Heather Swift. Zinke spent $53,000 on three helicopter rides a year ago, including one that cost $6,250 to go horseback riding with Vice President Mike Pence. Pruitt also spent $25,000 on a soundproof "privacy booth" inside his office to prevent eavesdropping on his phone calls.
After media reports highlighted the spending, HUD canceled the order for the new furniture.
