A recent Washington Post article reported that U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is being protected by U.S. Marshals under a 7 ½ months contract for the amount of $7.78 million.
Federal marshals are protecting Education Secretary Betsy DeVos at a cost to her agency of nearly $8 million over nearly eight months, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
The Education Department has agreed to reimburse the marshals $7.78 million for their services from mid-February to the end of September, said a marshals spokeswoman — an average of about $1 million per month.
The plan is that U.S. Marshals will protect DeVos for four years unless the contract is terminated. That would compute to nearly $50 million–enough to purchase over 600 school buses. WOW!
Look for a bevy of U.S. Marshals traveling with her when she visits Van Wert City Schools on April 20.
