Exclusive: Joseph Farah calls on Congress to abolish 'wasteful and rogue agency'
The lies and deception started more than 10 years ago.
A climate-change “expert” for the Environmental Protection Agency, one of the highest-paid employees in the federal government, began falsifying calendar entries that were meant to document his work.
When John C. Beale was questioned about what he was doing, he began telling fellow workers and supervisors that he was actually working for the CIA.
He eventually stole more than $800,000 from taxpayers.
Beale was sentenced recently to two-and-a-half years in prison for the monumental scam he perpetrated for so long.
But that’s not justice.
Justice would be if the EPA management that allowed this theft to go on lost their jobs and their far more wasteful and rogue agency were abolished.
In sentencing Beale, federal district Judge Ellen S. Huvelle called him a stain on the federal workforce. That may be true. But he is hardly alone. An agency that could allow such behavior within its ranks for so long is a far bigger stain on government.
So who is holding the EPA accountable?
The answer is no one.
