"Fast and Furious" Failure Fosters Favoritism for Finagling Fed

Posted: 08.23.12 04:00 PM

Fox News, the*Washington Post, the*L.A. Times, and*The Hill*are all over this one, as they should be. It seems that BATFE's William McMahon, who, as the agency's Assistant Deputy Director for Field Operations approved its catastrophic and deadly “Fast and Furious” operation, is being allowed to receive his six-figure federal paycheck for nearly half a year, while working full-time as investment bank J. P. Morgan’s executive director for global security and investments in the Philippines. As the*Washington Post*reports, "McMahon was one of five ATF officials recently singled out in a*congressional report*on the botched gun operation. The report alleged that McMahon knew that no safeguards were in place to prevent a large number of guns from getting into Mexico, but he made no effort to stop them."Fox News*says "The [double-dipping, two-paycheck] arrangement allows McMahon to retire [from the BATFE] in December with a full government pension."
