Watchdog not only not watching, but covering things up himself, allegedly committing his own fraud. This is the Deputy Inspector General, because Obama hasn’t gotten around to proposing another candidate that might call out his administration.

The man in charge of policing waste, fraud and abuse at the federal government’s third-largest department has been accused of suppressing a politically sensitive report, violating anti-nepotism laws and misusing agency resources, according to a letter from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security.
Charles Edwards, Deputy Inspector General at the Department of Homeland Security and de facto head of the office, was ordered by Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson to provide sixteen separate document sets related to the allegations by July 19.
“This is supposed to be the most transparent administration in history, but we’re seeing a real pattern of this White House and their Secretaries applying pressure to inspectors general to whitewash reports,” Johnson said in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.
