Employee steals money from the EPA

An Environmental Protection Agency employee knowingly stole more than $886,000 from the agency, according to a criminal filing from the Department of Justice.

The alleged fraud occurred in the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation under the nose of former administrator Gina McCarthy, who now heads up the entire agency.

“There appears to be corruption to the umpteenth degree,” said Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter. “I think it’s appalling that Administrator McCarthy and former acting Administrator Bob Perciasepe could claim that sequester is depriving the agency of important resources when in fact their own employees are stealing from the government.”

EPA employee John Beale, who worked in the air office, stole $886,186 from the agency between 2000 and 2013. According to the criminal filing, Beale had stolen agency funds through salary, benefits, and certain bonuses that Beale “had not earned by providing employment services to the EPA.”

“It’s clear that further investigations are necessary, and at the appropriate time we’ll need answers – a whole lot of answers,” Vitter added.

    The dude on the left has woman’s hair or maybe the 18th century powdered wig look is back, the woman next to him has man’s hair. Writing more about the Marxist, effeminate half-black idiot would take too long

    The epitome of the dem/prog/lib mindset; cut out the middleman. Screw all that debit credit ledger bull, or getting the court to seize bucks so they can then re-steal it and then hide their tracks. That’s just too much like work.
