the $69 pizza

Canadian Immigration Minister Joe Volpe has expensive taste and poor judgment:

A day after failing to explain how he had managed to spend C$138 on pizza for two, Canadian Immigration Minister Joe Volpe was roasted in Parliament on Wednesday for spending C$207 on pizza for three people at the same establishment.

Volpe charged both meals to his expense account, prompting opposition Conservative parliamentarians to accuse him of wasting taxpayers’ money. The ruling Liberals are trying to overcome the damage done by a government patronage scandal.
