    I guess financial savvy is one reason he got the job!

    Apparently, he charged the $270,000 sound system in several installments, and then got a government check to reimburse him, rather than requesting a check at first.

    There were apparently other charges, amounting to more than six figures, as well. The official in question can't seem to remember what he redeemed the hundreds of thousands of points for.
