In Maryland's Prince George's County, county Executive Jack B. Johnson "awarded 51 county contracts totaling nearly $3.3 million to 15 of his friends and political supporters, some of whom had no expertise in the field." The Washington Post investigates Johnson's dealings, further finding that he and other officials from the same county "used county-issued credit cards to pay for personal expenses totaling thousands of dollars," including plane tickets, clothing, video rentals and prescription drugs. These charges were seldom repaid in the county's mandated deadline of 10 business days.
