EPA - well there may be one at the IRS s well, sad part is THEY DID SIGN OFF ON HIS PAYCHECKS!!! :)

Beale dealt with his workplace malaise by convincing his bosses that he was a CIA operative whose top-secret work required him to be out of the office for long periods of time—including one stretch that lasted 18 months.

In reality, the agency’s top climate-change expert spent most of his time puttering around his Northern Virginia home or at his vacation house on the Cape, collecting his salary (plus bonuses!) while doing zero work. To break the monotony, he would take deluxe personal trips, on the EPA’s dime, of course, running up fat tabs for first-class airfare, limos, and five-star hotels.

How long did this fraud go on? Hard to say. Two decades, maybe longer. Beale resigned in April, after learning that he was under federal investigation. Court documents trace his shenanigans back through 2000. In its probe, however, the EPA’s inspector general turned up evidence that Beale had been making (unrelated) stuff up since 1989. For his part, Beale reportedly told the IG’s office that he started spinning spy stories in 1994 out of boredom and a need for attention.

 

I stand by that to drain the swamp they need to account for the people in their areas, what they do and are they actually working, dead or just bored and taking a really long vacation! If they can not locate someone for say 2-3 pay periods cut the funds off and when they show up to wonder why the gravy train stopped, have them show where they have actually been working for it.

 

Would not be supprised to find that people doing one job are being paid from several different spots for the same job since apparently no one knows anything about accounting.
