A report determined that the administrator of the federal agency used transportation for unauthorized activities.
The administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), William Brock Long, will have to reimburse money to the federal government for the misuse of official vehicles.
Longo acknowledged the “mistakes” made both by the agency and the director, according to the US media Politico.
Reimbursement will occur after an inspector general investigation of the D epartment National deSeguridad (DHS, for its acronym in English) discovered that there was an “inappropriate” use of vehicles.
The information was confirmed tonight by the secretary of DHS, Kirstjen Nielse, through a press release.
The statements state that after a review of the report it was determined that Long used the vehicles for “unofficial” activities.
Long was investigated on the possible misuse of vehicles and federal government personnel for his six-hour trips from his residence, in North Carolina, to the FEMA headquarters in Washington, DC
