    U.S. Treasury staffer solicited hookers

    U.S. Treasury staffer solicited hookers

    A freedom of information request revealed several incidents of major ethical breaches at the Department of Treasury, involving the solicitation of prostitutes using a government resources as well conflict of interest concerns.

    This is the latest in a string of embarrassments and scandals for the Obama administration; the staffers involved have not been prosecuted because they didn’t include “underage prostitutes or human trafficking.” The Hill:

    Treasury Department officials have been cited for soliciting prostitutes, breaking conflict-of-interest rules and accepting gifts from corporate executives, according to the findings of official government investigations.

    The revelations of unethical behavior at Treasury are detailed in little-noticed documents posted this month on governmentattic.org, which publishes agency responses to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

    From CBN News:

    The U.S. Attorney’s office in D.C. decided not to prosecute the federal worker, who had worked for the government for 36 years, even though the acts violated rules against “disgraceful conduct….” The Treasury Department argues the violations were isolated incidents and not indicative of the department’s culture as a whole. Even so, this is the latest department under the Obama Administration to be at the center of an investigation.

    Imagine if this had happened under a Republican administration!

    Heck, the Dems scream “Impeachment!” when a Republican president just thinks about doing something that might harm liberal interests. Imagine what a real-life scandal would do!

    Never forget the fabulous way the GOP rallies ’round its own: Iran-Contra, Republicans told Reagan to get a good criminal defense attorney and prepare for impeachment; trumped-up 90s pseudo-scandals, Gingrich gets piled on…

    OK, I have to stop now. I’m depressing myself.

    Pay to play has permiated even the lowest aspects of Obamatopia. A classic case of a fish rotting from the head dowm.
