According to CNN's report, "an August email from a career administration staffer, with the subject line 'Secretary's dining room set needed, ' to Carson's assistant refers to 'printouts of the furniture the Secretary and Mrs. Carson picked out'".
As CNN notes, one HUD spokesman even blamed the purchase on an unnamed staffer: "The secretary did not order a new table".
Austin Evers, American Oversight's executive director, said in a statement that the effort to upgrade Carson's immediate surroundings is at odds with some of his public policy positions, including a quip he made during an interview with the New York Times in May that public housing officials should avoid creating "a comfortable setting that would make somebody want to say: 'I'll just stay here".
A HUD spokesman, who previously spoke to CNN under the condition of anonymity, had said the Carsons did not know which items were being purchased for the office and that Candy Carson had no interest in redecorating. "We will find another solution for the furniture replacement".

"All the furniture in his office was purchased by the government prior to his arrival". "Are you available on any of those dates and would you like to come in and have input on the redecorating?"
He said he and his wife, Candy, looked at catalogs and were taken aback by the cost of some furniture but wanted to ensure anything picked wouldn't clash with other pieces in his office.
