Ever wonder how we learned about the crazy IRS expenses and the recent Verizon giving the gov-ment detailed data as to their paid users ?
Leakers... people who could no longer keep silent.
In the case of the IRS... an insider spoke up and brought to light how they spent our money.
In the case of our gov-ment spying on phone calls and phone data... someone leakerd to a british paper and they brought it to our attention and our government admitted yeah we do that...
The IRS scandal really pisses anyone off who has ever had to deal with them.
They used money intended for new personnel and customer service to basically give themselves additional work vacations.
It kills me when organizations want to talk about improving morale and rather than look to increase the pay of their workers ~ they would rather blow that money on stupid conferences and so called bs team building exercises like group country line dancing or disco like centered dancing while people look and cheer ?
Probably kickbacks were made and the worst thing is that they didn't bother to keep track of all expenses so the grand total of what was spend is unclear but what is known is that at least 50 million was blown on such things ?
Did anyone receive anything ? better service ? instead we have idiots testifying taking the fifth and others looking like fools apologizing and swearing that this will never happen again..
I bet they are swearing at the leaker who brought this to the attention of others.
Now as to the other thing of the gov-ment spying on citizens, be careful what you communicate.
They are a watching...
