The Office of the Inspector General audits all administrative branches of the federal government. Unfortunately, by the time it does so, the money has been spent.
I know you will be thrilled to learn this from a recent report.
The Agriculture Department spent $2 million on an internship program in which only one intern was hired, according to a new inspector general report. [emphasis supplied]
How any agency could spend $2 million on 1 person is mind numbing, but what the heck, it’s not their money anyway.
This, of course, comes on the heels of the recent revelations of how the GSA spent your money…$800,000 on a little get together in Las Vegas, complete with hot tub, and, $330,000 moving 1 employee from Denver to Hawaii. And who could forget the $268,732 spent on an awards ceremony near Washington, D.C., complete with drumsticks (for drums, not food), and those really cool time temperature picture frames for all government employees in attendance.
Just pull harder folks, so that the elite government bureaucrats can continue to spend.
Besides, there are probably plenty more $2 million interns out there in need of a job.
