Skip to comments.Taxpayer Funded Beer Bash, Ball Games and Scavenger Hunts at Holder DOJ
Posted on 06/16/2011 11:59:47 AM PDT by jazusamo
With the real unemployment rate above 16 percent, it is a perfect time to throw a lavish party for high paid federal employees at Eric Holders Department of Justice. At least Eric Holder thinks so.
The Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department, the same unit that dismissed the slam dunk voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party and forced Dayton (OH) to hire firefighters who flunked employment tests, is throwing an alcohol-fueled bash during work hours for 815 employees.
I have obtained the invitation posted internally to all 815 Civil Rights Division employees. It reads:
Its Time to Get Together, So Save the Date Its time to open up and let the sun shine in!
Ill wager if a Freedom of Information Act request was sent to DOJ about the costs of the beer bash and lost employee time, there wouldnt be much sunshine.
The invitation continues:
The Civil Rights Division will host a get-together on Thursday, June 30th in the Main Justice Courtyard, from 3:00 p.m. Until 6:00 p.m. Beer, wine and snacks will be served. Come on out and enjoy the weather and say hello to your co-workers! Hope to see you there! (Rain/extreme heat date: Wednesday, July 13th, 2011 Great Hall). Please contact Kathy Anderson in the Executive Office by email or on 202-514-5577 if you have any questions.
Sounds like fun, courtesy of the United States taxpayers. Instead of working, hundreds of federal employees will be tapping kegs. Instead of earning their GS-15 ($123,758 $155,500) salaries, they will be sipping Chardonnay while other Americans drive trucks, mow lawns or continue their long desperate search for employment.
The Main Justice Courtyard is in the center of the Robert F. Kennedy DOJ building and has fountains and landscaped terraces. It also has two large drive-thru open air gates on 9th and 10th street where members of the public could actually come and watch the party, and loudly petition the government about their grievance for holding such a tone-deaf party.
If that happens, you can bet the party will move to extreme heat date in the quiet confines of the Great Hall, inside the building.
Also invited to the party are numerous Senior Executive Service employees making $145,700 to $199,700. This Division has gone on a hiring spree since the inauguration and hired over 130 new high paid attorneys even though Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez informed employees they dont have enough money from Congress to do it, even while DOJ holds employee scavenger hunts and pays for days at the ballpark watching Washington Nationals games.
After President Obama joked about the failed stimulus plan and the not-so shovel ready recipients of trillions of dollars, it seems an odd time for federal employees to be imbibing on the taxpayers dime during work hours. Then again, they probably didnt count on much sunshine.
GS-15. Qualified to tap a keg...
Obama has got to go.
More beer summits?
Maybe the DC Chapter folks who have the leisure to emulate these federal employees could freep them into going inside.
PS: My employer won’t provide alcohol at events for protection against liability. But I guess if your boss is the federal AG, you’re immune to any legal action. . . .
These days one really has to travel to Latin America or Africa to match the levels of corruption seen in the Obama administration.
Disgusting Bastards, traitors all.
Remember they now "make the law" and no greater evidence of the superiority of one group over another exists-Blackstone, Commentaries on the Laws of England, Vol I.
As the Gaul said to the Roman: "Woe to the conquered!"
Okay, so you failed.
You will only be admitted to the party if you are one of HIS PEOPLE.
Sounds like a company picnic.
In my successful Fortune 500 company, ALL alcohol is paid for by the employee. No exceptions (and the CEO has been known for his tendency toward the bottle—it’s not because the management has any religious qualms).
Anything else is considered profligate.
For this to be taking place in a government institution at any level funded by taxpayers is outrageous.
I think it's safe to say that drinking alcohol on duty in a government environment whether city, county, state or federal level would be grounds for dismissal even if the taxpayers were not footing the bill for it.
“For this to be taking place in a government institution at any level funded by taxpayers is outrageous.”
Do you really think these worthless slugs give a rat’s ass about what you think? To the victors come the spoils.

Don’t have to look too far in the DOJ to find scavengers...
So, they party on our dime, while society is going down the tubes with their marxist policies. Disgusting is a mild word for it.
Okay, so you failed.
You may want to have your sarcasm detector looked at. It doesn't appear to be working. :=)
Everyone connected to Ø will party more and more until next November because after the Nov. elections, the partying will end. Ø will have been defeated. So party on you American hating commies. November 6th is the drop dead date. After that, no more taxpayer-funded shindigs. You’re on your own.
And I would say the same to you.......: )
