“There appears to be corruption to the umpteenth degree,” Sen. David Vitter said, reacting to news an EPA employee has been charged with stealing $886,186 over more than a decade.
Vitter called for an investigation and rebuked EPA officials for complaining about the sequester cutting their agency’s budget given that “their own employees are stealing” from them:
“I think it’s appalling that Administrator McCarthy and former acting Administrator Bob Perciasepe could claim that sequester is depriving the agency of important resources when in fact their own employees are stealing from the government.”
“It’s clear that further investigations are necessary, and at the appropriate time we’ll need answers – a whole lot of answers.”
