Description

WTAE-TV reports on Allegheny County port authority's extravagant spending. At times of budget woes, when the agency had to cut bus routes and raise fares for the poorest segment of the community, its executives "were treating themselves with trips to Europe; gifts of silver, crystal and perfume for board members and contractors; and overnight stays in hotels with room rates of more than $300 per night."
