Hooters Wants To Pay FEMA For Champagne Bought With Hurricane Credit Card

The Hooters restaurant chain is looking for FEMA's address.

Company Chairman Bob Brooks says he wants to reimburse the agency for the 200-dollar bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne that was purchased with a government credit card issued to Hurricane Katrina victims.

The champagne was purchased in San Antonio. It was among numerous examples of improper spending of hurricane relief money cited earlier this week by Congress' Government Accountability Office.

The GAO says the bogus spending could be as high as one-point-four (b) billion dollars. "
