It is understandable that multibillionaire Betsy DeVos needs round-the-clock protection. She makes a lot of people angry.

But why does her security detail cost $7.7 million?

Her brother owns a private military. Maybe he could protect her.

Maybe she could use some of the money she saves not paying taxes by registering her ten yachts in the Cayman Islands to pay for her own security.

Maybe she should dip into her $5 billion fortune and pay for it herself.

Politico reports:

DEVOS’ SECURITY COSTS RUN HIGH: The tab for DeVos’ security detail is projected to cost up to $7.7 million in the 2019 budget year, which started Monday, a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service told POLITICO on Tuesday night.

— The Marshals Service said the final cost of protecting DeVos in fiscal 2018 was $6.8 million. That’s more than the $6.5 million officials estimated last year as the maximum for fiscal 2018, which the Education Department deemed a “high water mark” the agency didn’t plan to exceed. The department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

— DeVos’ round-the-clock detail is provided by the Marshals Service, which is highly unusual — the past four Education secretaries have been protected by the agency’s own small security force. Her security detail, ordered by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, began in February 2017. The cost of DeVos’ protective detail between February 2017 and September 2017 was $5.3 million — about $2.5 million less than what was projected.
