Happy Holidays! LAPD Confirms Someone Sent Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin A Gift Wrapped Box Of Manure
Mnuchin and his wife found a wrapped in holiday gift paper filled with horse manure when they arrived home for the holidays.

LAPD Sgt. R. Briggs later described the contents of the package to be horse feces.
Mnuchin became Treasury Secretary in February. Mnuchin also worked as the finance chairman for Donald Trump’s campaign for president.

In addition, Mnuchin worked for The Goldman Sachs Group earlier in his career.

Mnuchin and his brother also pocketed $3.2 million from Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme when their mother died.
