Between March 2009 and August 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder made 213 trips, racking up more than $4 million in travel costs, a bill paid for by U.S. taxpayers, the Washington Times reports
The figures were contained in documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.

According to the New York Daily News
, 31 of the trips were personal in nature, including two trips to Martha’s Vineyard that totaled $95,184 in flight expenses, eight visits to Farmingdale, N.Y. for $118,553, and an Atlantic City getaway for $118,553.
Holder also billed taxpayers more than $113,000 for four trips he made to address advocacy groups with a liberal political leaning.
Most of Holder’s travel expenses were for meetings and events, but some included bills for travel tied to commencement speeches at universities with endowments that reached billions of dollars, the documents showed.
