Mr. Marrone acknowledged in court that as a Pennsylvania legislative aide he oversaw the private renovation of his politician boss’s mansion — all while drawing paychecks from taxpayers

...

“You’re looking at a state not unlike New York, New Jersey and Illinois for pay-to-play politics,” Mr. Madonna said. “But it’s pretty fundamental that you aren’t supposed to work privately when you’re supposed to be on the state payroll, and he was on the state payroll

Dept of Homeland Security. Creepy Nazi sounding UnAmerican name. The manpower of the USMC and twice the budget.

I’ve met a couple DHS types (from my local area before they re-located to Virginia to complete their douche-baggery training) . I say types because those I met seem to fancy themselves something better than the citizens that are funding their sorry asses. Almost like our country would not exist if it weren’t for God almighty having made sure they we’re birthed to take care of us and prior to them nothing existed at all. That wafti-ness of arrogance that seems to proceed them before they walk into a room as I quote one in-particular; “There is enough government protection that people don’t need guns anymore, we can take care of this”. I still wonder to this day if that asshole even realizes he is part of the problem.

Yeesh - going by his background he is definitely wise-guy material. Makes me look at DHS in a whole different light now.
