But we have to raise taxes to pay schoolteachers (part xxv)
Gold fixtures? Marble tile? Well, you should know—you paid for it.
Scott MacFarlane of WSB-TV Atlanta’s Washington Bureau has finally secured images of the expensive taxpayer-funded bathroom renovation in question, which occurred in 2007 for the bathroom of President George W. Bush’s Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne.

It took the government four years to produce the photos requested by the news station under the Freedom of Information Act.
Somebody kept coming out waving a hand, and saying “don’t go in there.”
The photos show a tiled shower, custom cabinetry, a Sub-Zero fridge (price tag $3,590), $1,523 wall panels, a mirrored sink with expensive fixtures, even a “vintage” toilet paper holder, according to the news station’s slideshow.
That cost a quarter million dollars?
