Wow! This is so rare.
Naturally, the San Jose Mercury Newsless didn’t notice.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson put his agency’s former internal watchdog on leave within hours of the publication of a Senate report that concluded the employee was too cozy with senior agency officials and delayed or classified some critical reports to accommodate President Barack Obama’s political appointees.
Charles K. Edwards had been allowed to quietly resign as acting inspector general and transfer to another post within the Homeland Security Department in December, just before Johnson took office. But after Johnson reviewed the 27-page report from a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs oversight subcommittee Thursday he put Edwards on leave.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were some YouTube video.
Unfortunately, I suspect that “put on leave” is not exactly the moral equivalent of having the White House bouncer grab the perp by the scruff of his neck and seat of his pants and forceably eject him through the service entrance.
