EPA GIVES YOUR TAX DOLLARS AWAY AS A “BONUS”: An Inspector General audit shows that the EPA gave about a half million dollars in unauthorized bonuses to about 11 lucky employees as “retention” awards. Some employees received the extra pay for years (again, unauthorized), even after being promoted. But hey, I’m sure this is just an isolated thing. I’m sure the rest of the federal government runs smoothly and efficiently.
