Smoothie Factory employee fired over $1 million in expenses

WASHINGTON — A Smoothie factory employee is under fire for a $1,000 expense that could land him in jail, including $300 in rent, the Washington Post reported Friday.

The employee, who is white, was fired after he allegedly left his job last year to travel to South Africa to meet with a business partner, the Post reported.

The partner did not return calls seeking comment Friday.
