Hundreds of dollars at a late-night private room in a karaoke bar is the latest expense uncovered in a KTVU investigation into spending of public money by top officials at the Port of Oakland.
Cafe Juliet is a business that bills itself as a private room karaoke bar. It is also where the Port of Oakland’s International Marketing Manager Lawrence Dunnigan spent $550 dollars last year.
The receipt shows his credit card was charged at 1:44 a.m. Dunnigan wrote on his expense report that he was at a business meeting with four members of China Merchants who had been in town for a trade symposium with local and national leaders.
When a KTVU News reporter and producer visited the bar, a regular patron there told them, “You can get girls here.”
