Brock Long—the chief disaster official for Hurricane Florence and administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency—is under investigation for alleged misuse of official cars, Politico reports. The Department of Homeland Security inspector general is looking into accusations that Long misused government vehicles during his six-hour commutes to North Carolina from Washington. If found to have wrongly used taxpayers’ cash for his travel, he would be the just the latest of current and former top Trump administration officials to fall foul of the rules. The IG is investigating whether Long misused government resources and personnel on trips back home to Hickory, North Carolina, on weekends, according to two unnamed officials. One of the vehicles—a black Suburban—was reportedly involved in an accident, sparking the IG’s interest.
