[He should split expenses with Pruitt] Facebook Spent $20 Million on
Relatable Guy Mark Zuckerberg's Bodyguards, Flights Since 2015


        Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a personal security and
        private flight budget that likely eclipses that of anyone but
        the highest-profile celebrities and government officials, CNN
        reported on Saturday.  Since 2015, Zuckerberg has spent around

        $5.8 million in 2016 and nearly $9 million last year,
        according to public filings. CNN reports that the company says
        the spending is necessary to address "threats to his safety
        arising directly as a result of his position as our founder,
        Chairman, and CEO" and that "We require these security
        measures for the company's benefit because of the importance

        cost apparently goes to Zuckerberg's personal protective
        detail. Of the $8.9 million spent on Zuckerberg in 2017, CNBC
        reported, $7.3 million went to his home and travel security

        company's chief operating officer, received $2.3 million in
        "other compensation" for her own authorized security program.
        While it is not uncommon for executives to have such expenses
        covered by their companies, CNN noted, the scale of the
        spending may be atypical ...
