    Gee, and here I thought the Berkeley study indicated only the rich cheated and were greedy. Now I find out our sacred unionized Federal workers are cheating too. I'm so surprised.

    In any private organization (and most public ones), the employees, and probably the SUPERVISORS would be fired on the spot.
    A slap on the wrists doesn't seem too effective to me.

    When the media finds out about this, we have to wonder WHAT ELSE is hiding that the "supervisors" don't allude to.

    Its no wonder no one trusts the feds. for much of anything!!

    In our agency (I'm not naming which one), a one-time misuse or a credit card means paying back the card and a fifteen day suspension without pay. A second misuse is immediate termination. Our statements are reviewed with receipts monthly and audited by an outside set of eyes yearly. I don't understand how fraudulent use even happens. I guess other agencies aren't as thorough with their employee as ours. I wouldn't even dream of using my credit card inappropirately

    Way to go DesNews, I wonder how many investigative reporters are on staff? There's clearly enough shenanigans to warrant several.
