Money Pit: ATFE edition

Of Ams and The Law has an excellent post about how those civil diservants at the ATFE are spending your tax dollars.

The new headquarters of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in the District is at least $19 million over budget at a time when the agency is considering sharp cuts in the number of new cars, bulletproof vests and other basics it provides agents.

.....

Truscott planned to purchase, among other things, nearly $300,000 in extras for the new director's suite, including a $65,000 conference table and more than $100,000 for hardwood floors, custom trim and other items,....

Note: emphasis added.

The ATFE director even has his own five man security detail.

What merry bunch of jackholes is in charge of this mental abortion?
