The head of Catholic Charities of San Francisco has apologized and paid back $3,158 that he charged to his expense account for cosmetic surgery, Reuters reported August 2.
Chief executive officer Frank Hudson submitted expense claims for laser hair removal and injections of an anti-wrinkle compound around the corners of his eyes.
He also charged almost $52,000 worth of meals over the last two years, which he has defended as necessary for maintaining a high profile for the charity.
An internal review of accounting procedures is underway at the charity, a spokesman for the archdiocese, told Reuters. The archdiocese has also hired the accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers to conduct an independent review.
