Your Criminal Gov’t: ‘Fast and Furious’ ATF Official Granted Paid Leave to Take 6-Figure Job at JP Morgan

[Ed. Note: How is this NOT a headline from The Onion? We are officially traveling through the Twilight Zone.]

by Susan Jones, CNSnews:

The long-awaited inspector general’s report on the Justice Department’s botched gun-running scheme is finished, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said on Wednesday.

But along with that news comes more questions: Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) are demanding to know why a top ATF official involved in Operation Fast and Furious remains on paid leave from ATF — while simultaneously drawing a six-figure salary from J.P. Morgan, a major investment bank.

In a letter to the acting head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Issa and Grassley asked why the Justice Department would approve such a special arrangement for Bill McMahon.

“Under any reading of the relevant personnel regulations, it appears that ATF management was under no obligation to approve this sort of arrangement,” wrote Issa and Grassley. “Given McMahon’s outsized role in the Fast and Furious scandal, the decision to approve an extended annual leave arrangement in order to attain pension eligibility and facilitate full-time, outside employment while still collecting a full-time salary at ATF raises a host of questions about both the propriety of the arrangement and the judgment of ATF management.”

    Being a former Union Stewart with the and working with the Federal Government for over 20 years. I can tell you this is an Automatic Internal Affairs Investigation and automatic dismissal from this position! Whomever granted this bullish*t should also be fired. You can’t hold a Federal Job and a Civilian Job at the same-time unless authorized by the District Field Officer! So who is in charge of him?

    Holder is just sending one of the gang there to make sure Dimon doesn’t rehypothecate any of his drug money as the morgue melts down. They got a lot of bad guys they need to pay to keep this corrupt monster from eating itself and a disruption in drug money will sink their rotting ship. I’m glad I’m not them, they may seem powerful as long as they can control what’s on tv but they are on really thin ice and I’m going to be more than happy to stand there and laugh when they fall through, so long you filthy punks.
