Office of Administration Director, Renee Page, sold jewelry and other products during regular business hours. She also hired 17 - yes - 17 family members and friends as interns, while her daughter (an EPA employee) got cash bonuses out of her budget.
EPA senior official John Beale was convicted last year of defrauding the agency out of $900,000 in a 13 year span! And who is paying for all of this?! We are!!
Special agent Elisabeth Drake, an investigator with the inspector general's office, was physically obstructed / assaulted and threatened by Steven Williams, an EPA senior official, during an investigation this past October.
In May it was revealed that an unnamed high-level EPA employee was watching up to 6 hours of pornography every day... for over 3 years! He also had over 7,000 porn files on his work computer! What is really sick is that he is still working there because he never got fired... making $120,000 a year!
Another unnamed EPA employee had a "work at home" job with the agency, making over $600,000 in pay and benefits for the past 5 years along with performance bonuses! The catch... she did NO WORK during that span!! What happened with that case? She simply retired. Still another unnamed employee
got regular paychecks for over a year even while living in a nursing home!
Why do these lawbreakers keep getting paychecks! And why are so many unnamed! It seems that the only thing the EPA is protecting is their own organization! I'll say it again... who is paying for all this? You are! We all are!
