Sometimes it is great to have a corporate card, and sometimes it can backfire pretty significantly like it did for Mizzou director of video operations Michael Schumacher. Schumacher was busted when a recent audit of business expenses revealed bills for more than $7,600 from a Las Vegas strip club.
According to Arkansas Sports 360:
Department spokesman Chad Moller said Tuesday that director of video operations Michael Schumacher had repaid $7,605.50 for two credit charges from a May 5, 2011, visit to Olympic Garden. One of the charges included a $2,000 tip on a $4,400 bill at a nightclub billed as the “only Vegas strip club on the Strip.”
Schumacher was representing Mizzou at a professional conference but traveled alone, Moller said. He said “responsive and appropriate disciplinary action was taken,” but that he was unable to elaborate on a personnel matter. Schumacher did not respond to several messages left at his home and campus office.
