Feds used donations intended for poor for massages, luxuries for themselves |

Federal employees and a contractor diverted more than $1 million of charitable contributions to spending on themselves for in-office massages, meals at every meeting and other luxuries and unnecessary expenses, a government audit found.

They called themselves “volunteers” and said they needed “motivation” to help the less fortunate, even though some 41 federal workers were being paid full-time salaries to administer just one local chapter of the government’s annual workplace charity drive, the Combined Federal Campaign.

It is good to be one of the rulers.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. True, but it’s not just government swine who pig out. Practically everyone who gets close to the money stream can’t help but dip their trotters into it. Recall United Way and the many well-paid Aramony family members. Makes me glad I never gave them a dime. (Despite great pressure by the top manager at one emlpoyer. Presumably he’d have gotten some kind of award for 100% employee participation. Sorry, Mark, won’t do it.)
