That $16 Muffin Thing? Not So Much.

Imagine, a reporter doing actual reporting! This intrepid reporter went back to the DoJ inspector general report and found that, if you looked at the info the OIG processed, you discovered two things.

1. OIG probably did go overbudget on its conferences.

2. There were no $16 muffins. The OIG calculation is based on a failure to understand how catering contracts work.

Fucking Morons on LS

Getting over my annoyance of these idjits piddling in my spectrum policy sandbox, the result of pretending this is a "scandal" is going to be to screw up spectrum reallocation for the next 10 years. Which, of course, is why DoD did what it did. Ass wipes.
