From Obama on Down: Corruption Runs Deep in this Administration

Even a Democratic controlled subcommittee of the Senate has come out with a report showing how politics motivates the Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security. The Inspector General changed and delayed investigations because they might hurt the Obama Administration.

The first two paragraphs in today's Washington Post sums it up:

"The top watchdog for the Department of Homeland Security altered and delayed investigations at the request of senior administration officials, compromising his independent role as an inspector general, according to a new report from a Senate oversight panel.

Charles K. Edwards, who served as acting DHS inspector general from 2011 through 2013, routinely shared drinks and dinner with department leaders and gave them inside information about the timing and findings of investigations, according to the report from an oversight panel of the Homeland Security and Government Operations Committee."
