$500,000 in federal funds spent on beauty products for dogs

By April Hill

United States Senator Tom Coburn says the waste is overflowing and it’s time to take out the trash.

The Oklahoma lawmaker’s report on the year's most wasteful government spending is due out Tuesday.

KRMG got a sneak peek.

Item number 61 is $97,000 in federal money spent on floating outhouses for Oregon fishermen.

The 46th item is about taxpayers paying $505,000 to promote specialty hair and beauty products for cats and dogs.

There is also the $25,000 that funded the Alabama Watermelon Queen tour in 2012.

You can hear the rest of Coburn's 100 examples of the year's most wasteful government spending report here on KRMG on Tuesday.
