Intern Working at National Archives Sold Stolen Documents on eBay


www.philly.com

Denning McTague tried to turn his unpaid intern job in the National Archives here into a moneymaker last summer by stealing some documents and selling them on eBay, the Justice Department said yesterday.

He took 165 Civil War documents and sold them on the online auction, but then someone tipped off the federal government and McTague's activities were uncovered.

U.S. Attorney Pat Meehan announced yesterday that McTague has been charged with the thefts. He hasn't been incarcerated and isn't considered a flight risk, said a Justice Department spokesman.

This is a disgrace! What is going on at the National Archives? After the Sandy Burglar case and this, I think they need to rethink their security.

All of a sudden stealing the Declaration of Independence out of there à la National Treasure doesn't seem so outlandish anymore.

The Justice Department has some blame in this. Sandy Berg(l)er stole archives pertaining to 9/11 and got a slap on the wrist. What kind of message did that send?

If this 40 yr old intern doesn't get a minimum of 20 years, it will happen again.

So why haven't they charged Sandy Berger? I'm still ticked that he has gotten away with it. Absolutely sickening.
