Admit error and it takes the issue away? No it doesn't, it blows the issue up to an issue of admitted corruption.
Make the issue one of corruption on the part of the investigators. Because that's the truth, and that's the only way it will go away.
I wonder when this hit audit begun? 2009? Probably.
The IG is Glenn Fine, who was appointed by Bill Clinton in 2000! (this is what happens when we don’t clean house)
So from 2000 to 2009 this was not an issue. Then in 2009 it becomes an issue. Whom appointed most of the USA’s during the period 2001 to 2009, BUSH. Some political hump at AP put two and two together and came out with a report citing Christie and he had to do some digging to identify him as no names were in the report, unless he had someone pointing him in the right direction.
On the other hand, I reviewed the report and note while diminimus in nature, the rules were stretched in many cases.
Obviously, the travel report should have to be approved at a next higher level...and I suppose that is what will be done in the future.
