The feds could not account for hundreds of laptops, iPods, and digital cameras. Somehow, 16 computer server arrays costing $100,000 each cannot be found.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. The government-employee credit-card-spending-spree analysis shows millions spent on internet dating services -- your tax dollars are buying this stuff, folks! -- lingerie, and custom-made suits. There are gambling charges, mortgage charges -- you name it, it's there. One woman spent over $100,000 a year for six years on her live-in boyfriend! (No guy is worth that, gals.) Of course, this only elicits yawns from liberals, who are ever-clamoring for even more government spending on their growing list of entitlements.
But let me run this past you private-sector types out there who are held accountable for your company's budget. If auditors discovered that almost half the charges on your company credit cards violated policy, and that millions of dollars of your company's assets were misappropriated, heads would roll, right? And liberals would be first in line to rage about corporate greed, and to demand that corporate officers -- like Enron types -- go to jail. But with taxpayer money -- your money, your government -- it's just business as usual... and it still isn't enough for them!
