I'm shocked, shocked to find government fraud going on in here

Quote
The gist of it revolves around fraudulent pay practices, with certain employees reaping millions in unearned Law Enforcement Availability Pay (LEAP). The ironic thing is, the feds are prosecuting an Illinois police officer for fraudulent timekeeping because his department had received federal funds and he now faces up to 10 years in prison. That means some of these  “time bandits” could end up becoming “prohibited persons.”

(wishful thinking, IMO)

I suppose the wasteful spending is a given.  AFT is a .gov agency, after all.

We'll see if any heads roll because of the fraud.  My guess is no.  They can shoot dogs and stomp kittens with impunity, so what's a little monetary malfeasance?

Government fraud is like an iceberg - only about 10% is ever visible above the surface.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

Point taken. In fact, move the decimal point. Two places left.
