via Ben Carson cancels $31K dining set order for HUD office following backlash – AOL Finance

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced on Thursday he had his office cancel an order placed for a $31,000 dining room set for his personal office, reportedly saying he may consider another one but his preference is one with a more “reasonable” price.

Carson’s decision to cancel the order comes after reports this week that redecorating for his office exceeded the legal limit of $5,000. Items purchased included a custom hardwood table, chairs and a hutch.
