IRS Credit Cards Used for Host of Inappropriate Purchases

Wine, romance novels and porn. Who says IRS employees are cold and heartless?

A government watchdog says lax oversight by the Internal Revenue Service allowed workers to use agency credit cards to buy wine for an expensive luncheon and, in one case, romance novels, diet pills and baby clothes.

Two IRS credit cards were used to buy online pornography, though the employees reported the cards stolen. One of the workers reported five agency credit cards lost or stolen.
