DOVER - Delaware State Treasurer Chip Flowers called for an overhaul of the state-issued credit card system used by public employees in a 21-page report released Friday regarding misuse by former Deputy State Treasurer Erika J. Benner.

Ms. Benner charged $2,341.58 in non-business-related expenses on a state credit card between Oct. 6, 2011 and Feb. 25, 2013, and resigned her position on Sept. 4, 2013. She later re-paid what was owed, but the treasurer questioned how the system overlooked regular personal charges during a 16-month period.
A call from Secretary of Finance Tom Cook and Division of Accounting Director Kristopher Knight on April 10 first notified Flowers of irregularities on Ms. Benner's card, which was identified as fraudulent activity by her husband, officials and reports stated.
During that call, Treasurer Flowers said the other personal charges by Ms. Benner were never mentioned, which included tickets and car service to a New England Patriots game and other expenses later deemed as personal costs.
Treasurer Flowers said he asked the DOA to "cease and desist what appeared to be questionable and illegal conduct by your agency" related to a probe into all credit card use by treasury employees.
"Only in recent months has Treasurer Flowers disclosed that there were many more questionable charges made by Deputy Treasurer Benner than his office had previously disclosed.
The report recommended 12 actions be taken after the issues, including revoking Ms. Benner's credit card privileges and reducing treasury credit cards from 15 to 4.
The report notes that Benner reimbursed the state for all improper charges during the period.
The report also chronicles communications, primarily through email and telephone conversations, between officials in the state Division of Accounting, which administers the state's credit card program, and employees of the state Treasury concerning charges made on Benner's state credit card. The report notes that the misuse of the state credit card was disclosed to Flowers in June 2013, after which Flowers created a special investigative team that worked with multiple state agencies, including the Office of Management & Budget and the Attorney General's Office to create the report. To protect taxpayer funds, in addition to the $2,341.58, Flowers requested Benner pay thousands in additional charges until the Treasury could determine if such charges were legitimate business expenses (the report found such charges were in fact legitimate business expenses and most (if not all) of this amount will be returned to Benner).
In addition, the report found that neither the Division of Accounting nor the Treasury's credit card coordinator warned Benner that she should cease using her state credit card for personal reasons.

Deputy Treasurer Benner remains on state payroll 11:02 AM

Should the state hire Erika Benner to work in another position? Yes. But don't give her a state credit card No. Not worth the risk Let her run for a state office. She's qualified to be a politician now. Vote now

Then they were legitimate and the ... [cached]

Then they were legitimate and the Deputy Treasurer Erika Benner was owed money back that she had paid back to the state because the expenses were not legitimate. See what I mean?

First it was only Ms. Benner who had misused the state issued credit cards, then possibly also Delaware Treasurer Chip Flowers.
The latest revelation comes as we find out in articles in the Wilmington News Journal, that both Mr. Flowers and Ms. Benner used their state issued credit cards to pay for lodging and food, and other services on a trip to Alaska for a conference.
Ms. Benner registered at a lodge near the national park, along with a second adult.
Ms. Benner used her state issued credit card to rent a car to go to the lodge she stayed at while visiting the national park.
The odd thing is, Mr. Flowers used his state issued credit card to pay for valet parking on the day that Ms. Benner rented a car to go to the lodge, however, Mr. Flowers did not rent a car.
