Travel 'Volunteer' Gives Back $1,400

June 02, 1993| The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — An airline charter executive brought into the White House travel office on a volunteer basis when career officials were fired two weeks ago received a $1,400 commission for the first flight she arranged.

Penny Sample, president of Air Advantage of Albuquerque, N.M., returned the commission Tuesday after the White House was asked about it, White House senior adviser George Stephanopoulos said. "It was a mistake. She did not realize the funds were going to her firm."

White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers described Sample on May 21 as an unpaid volunteer who offered to help arrange airplane charters after the firing of the seven-member career travel office staff two days earlier.
