getting even MORE power?
An independent government watchdog agency is investigating allegations
that President Obama's nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives retaliated against employees for
whistle-blowing, FoxNews.com has learned.
“First, he refused to make himself available for interviews with my
staff and before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
to discuss Operation Fast and Furious,” Grassley said. “He also sent a
video message to all ATF staff that many construed as a threat to
whistle-blowers in the ATF.”
In February, several members of Congress called for an investigation
made by the Milwaukee arm of the ATF after the Milwaukee Journal
Sentinel published a series of stories exposing an undercover sting
operation that reportedly cost taxpayers thousands of dollars and netted
few results. The unsuccessful sting resulted in a still-missing machine
gun being taken from an agent’s car and angry residents saying that ATF
officials reintroduced crime into their neighborhood.
Yeah, what's the problem with having someone like this is a position of more power, given new laws to screw people around with...
One more politician who says vouchers are evil, that 'We have to support the public schools!' while sending his own kids to private schools.
Let's see, they were working at getting their staff and possibly themselves exemption from Obamacare because 'it'll be too expensive'; but after word gets out and people start yelling it's "Oh no, we're not doing that!"
Lying effing two-faced politicians.
Of course, the boss of DHS says that she and other officials can decide what laws will be enforced and it's nobody's business what they decide, too.
