Lawmakers urge President Obama to fill IG vacancies


IG posts are vacant at the State, Justice, Homeland Security, Labor and Housing and Urban Development departments, the lawmakers said in a letter. State's IG post has been vacant for three-and-a-half years, the letter said. Positions for the special IG for Afghanistan reconstruction, special IG for the Troubled Asset Relief Program and the intelligence community's IG are also vacant.

IGs serve as a bulwark against waste, mismanagement and misconduct, and if an agency's IG is missing, those kinds of abuses could proceed unchecked, the lawmakers said.

"We have serious concerns that the lack of permanent inspectors general at so many federal agencies is impeding the federal government's efforts to increase efficiencies and detect and prevent waste, fraud and abuse," the letter said. "We respectfully request that you move without delay to appoint qualified, experienced individuals to serve as inspectors general."


Okay, this seems to be a bit of news that ATS will find interesting.

There are dozens of threads about corruption, conspiracy, lies and the lying liars who tell them, etc. ad nauseum.
With all the problems in our own country, this article brings up the fact that even our leaders know they can't trust the federal agencies not to be wasteful, fraudulent, and abusive of the system.

Are they blaming the lack of inspectors? Or are they blaming the people not being inspected?

And if you read which agencies have no Inspector General - it's doubly shocking.
In particular:

Intelligence
Homeland Security
TARP
Justice

Unfreakingbelievable. I know, let's start by cutting all of the ig's to save some money, then we can really start to find all of the wasteful spending. Idiocy! The duplicitous nature with which this government conducts itself is just so far beyond comprehension. I swear, plain faced lies. Everything is lies!
