Top Medicaid official racked up $3.5 million in consulting charges — and billed it all to taxpayers

The person in charge of providing health care for low-income Americans spent several million dollars on taxpayer money on furthering her own career, a congressional investigation has found.

Seema Verma, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and a member of the coronavirus task force, racked up $3.5 million in consulting charges, event costs, and other things that developed her connections within the Republican party, Politico reports via the investigation set to be published Thursday. That included nearly $3,000 on a “Girl’s Night” party, about $1,000 to place an op-ed with Fox News, and dozens more line items before Verma was cut off last year.
