A veritable sodom and gomorrah...

If you needed more proof that Washington DC is basically a whore house, here you go:

"Government officials handling billions of dollars in oil royalties improperly engaged in sex with employees of energy companies they were dealing with and received numerous gifts from them, federal investigators said Wednesday.

The alleged transgressions involve 13 former and current Interior Department employees in Denver and Washington. Their alleged improprieties include rigging contracts, working part-time as private oil consultants, and having sexual relationships with — and accepting golf and ski trips and dinners from — oil company employees, according to three reports released Wednesday by the Interior Department's inspector general.

The investigations reveal a "culture of substance abuse and promiscuity" by a small group of individuals "wholly lacking in acceptance of or adherence to government ethical standards," wrote Inspector General Earl E. Devaney. Devaney's office spent more than two years and $5.3 million on the investigations."

Not one or two or even five people, but 13 people in one department were involved in this "culture of substance abuse and promiscuity." Although, in all fairness, they were likely well screened for their jobs as "loyal Bushies." How nice it is for all of us to know that to get a job with the federal government, one only need be willing to perform on all fours, literally.
