Republican lawmakers allege in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder that a key figure in the failed Fast and Furious anti-gunrunning operation has been allowed to earn a second paycheck while still receiving his government salary.
The new allegations come as Holder reviews the long-awaited internal report detailing what happened in — and who is to blame for — Fast and Furious, in which the U.S. knowingly let some 2,500 weapons slip into the hands of the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico, failing to track the guns as planned….Meanwhile, Sen. Charles Grassley and Rep. Darrel Issa, the two Republicans leading the charge against Holder on Capitol Hill, claimed in a letter Tuesday that ATF Assistant Deputy Director Bill McMahon has received a leave of absence allowing him to pull down two salaries. Taxpayers pay him six figures to do his ATF job while he’s also reportedly pulling down in excess of $100,000 as the full-time director of global security and investigations for JP Morgan in the Philippines.
The arrangement allows McMahon to retire in December with a full government pension.
Yep, help a corrupt government operation that undermines the 2nd Amendment and kills HUNDREDS of people, and you get away with a posh pension and your pockets BULGING with money! Can you wonder why none of these desk jockeys didn’t say “This is a horrible idea” when Fast and Furious was conspired?
Hell we wouldn’t even know about it if it wasn’t for whistle blowers who knew they were going into harms way!
