What the hell is wrong with this administration? Remember how Clinton used to have bimbo eruptions? Well, Zero an his administration are having corruption eruptions! Non stop.
Solyndra… Fast and Furious… Benghazi… Fast and Furious… Whistleblowers and Inspectors General intimidation and firing… union cronyism… AP phone records… James Rosen… NSA snooping… this is starting to read like a Billy Joel song!
The latest one has to do with the State Department. CBS News reports that State may have covered up illegal behavior on the part of its employees, including underage hookers and illegal drugs.
The memo, reported by CBS News’ John Miller, cited eight specific examples, including allegations that a State Department security official in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” with foreign nationals hired as embassy guards and the charge and that members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries” — a problem the report says was “endemic.”
Former State Department internal investigator Aurelia Fedenisn told CBS News, “We also uncovered several allegations of criminal wrongdoing in cases, some of which never became cases.”
Often times, other DSS agents were simply told to back off of investigations of high-ranking State Department members. Fedenisn told CBS that “hostile intelligence services” allow criminal behavior to continue.
In one such cover-up, investigators were told to stop probing the case of a U.S. ambassador who was suspected of patronizing prostitutes in a public park. The memo states that the ambassador was permitted to return to his post despite having, “routinely ditched…his protective security detail” in order to “solicit sexual favors from prostitutes.”
CBS also has a video of this story.
Is it an increase in detection, reporting or actual corruption?
Are more and more scumbags joining the ranks of the federal government, or are they just now floating up to the surface like turds in the toilet bowl after years of concealing their illicit activities?
Are people with integrity leaving federal service, or are they being corrupted by the opportunities?
Whatever it is, it’s time to clean house. Washington continues to be a cesspool of corruption, whether it’s elected leaders, or appointed ones.
When will Americans wake up?
