Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's Office Ordered $139,000 New Doors

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's office spent $139,000 on new doors, according to the Associated Press

A spokeswoman said Zinke wasn't aware of the cost of the contract, which includes replacing three sets of doors in Zinke's Washington, D.C., office — two of which open onto a balcony. 

Another unnamed official told the AP the project had been planned for two years. 

Zinke has come under scrutiny for his overuse of taxpayer dollars since taking office. He spent $53,000 on three helicopter rides in 2017. 

And other Trump administration officials have faced similar scrutiny. Most recently, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson canceled an order for a more than $31,000 dining room set for his office.
