FEMA faces Hurricane Florence with range of housing options from 2017 storms
Numerous Trump administration officials have been accused of improperly using taxpayer money and government resources for personal benefit.
Craig Fugate, FEMA administrator under President Obama, told Politico that he rarely used government vehicles in his eight years on the job.
FEMA is already under scrutiny as the potentially devastating Hurricane Florence prepares to make landfall along the Carolina coast.

FEMA's James Joseph said even with all of its assets, there are limits to what it can do.
CNN reached out to the DHS IG for comment and is awaiting a response. She called Long "an experienced and respected emergency manager".
Long seemed to have confirmed the investigation during a briefing on Thursday, saying that his office will "continue to fully cooperate with any investigation".
Long said the inspector general was looking into vehicle usage, but he didn't confirm that the review concerned his use of an official vehicle. "Bottom line is if we made a mistakes on how a program is run, we'll work with OIG to get those corrected", Long said. "At this time, we are fully focused on preparing for, responding to, and recovering from HurricaneFlorence and the storms in the Pacific", Houlton told ABC News. "Doing something unethical is not part of my DNA and it's not part of my track record in my whole entire career".
The actions by Long, the US government's lead disaster official as the country braces for Hurricane Florence, have been called into question by the inspector general over whether taxpayers have inappropriately footed the bill for his travel, an issue that has tripped up a number of current and former top Trump administration officials. Citing a current official, Politico also reported that aides were put up in a hotel at taxpayer expense on the weekends Long was in North Carolina.
