We the Feds Part I -- Postal Perks
Credit card fraud using Postal Service issued travel cards identified by the Inspector General is tiny in the grand scheme of things. Have to wonder why the supposed watchdogs don't focus on the much larger issue of handing over frequent flier miles and hotel awards earned for official travel, to personal use by employees who rack up the perk points by the hundreds of thousands on Uncle Sam's dime. It's symptomatic of what happens these days government wide. Agencies are run for the benefit of the employees, to hell with the ratepayer or taxpayer. More than anything Obama's "We the People" is "We the Feds."
