Green group wastes taxpayer funds

Was the $11,000  of taxpayer funds spent on premium coffee because of the winter of 2014? Was $25,000 spent on a Christmas party for Christmas tree farms?

From Fox News:
Millions more for questionable construction costs.

All this was billed to taxpayers by an obscure federally funded science group, according to a scathing new inspector general report.

The audit, conducted by the National Science Foundation inspector general and the Defense Contract Audit Agency, detailed spending by the Colorado-based National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). The nonprofit, designed to operate a network of ecological observatories across the continent, is solely funded by the National Science Foundation.

The report found that spending at the group has gotten out of control.
