The University of Missouri is cracking down on school-issued credit cards after an audit revealed absurd spending by school employees.
According to the Associated Press, athletic department Director of Video Operations Michael Schumacher charged $7,605.50 to his school-issued card during a May 5, 2011, visit to Olympic Garden strip club in Las Vegas. The AP says one of the two charges at the strip club included a $2,000 tip on a $4,400 bill.
Schumacher apparently was traveling alone and representing the school at a professional conference when he visited the strip club. Thankfully he paid back the charges.
The audit also flagged a $3,000 dinner several members of the basketball staff had at a Texas steakhouse. The school has deactivated 32 of the 120 credit cards that had been issued to school employees before the audit.
I just have to ask a few questions here. Which is dumber, spending $7,605 at a strip club, or paying for it with a school credit card? I suppose if you’re stupid (and hammered) enough to spend $7,605 at a strip club, you’re probably also dumb enough to think that paying for it with a school-issued credit card is a good idea.
What did he do, get a lap dance from all 300 girls in the club? Spend hours in the champagne room getting the Stu Price treatment? How can Missouri still employ this person? Oh I know, because they also employ Gary Pinkel.
