As you may have read in the Daily, or the Morning Reads, or theoretically in an actual newspaper, a number of Agriculture Department employees went skinny dipping, or didn’t in Lake Blackshear last September, during a taxpayer funded departmental retreats.
Members of the department are in full retreat this week as well after charges were leveled that the retreat was really more of a fraternity party, and that a “fraternity-type” atmosphere exists at the Department.
Two high ranking officials resigned under pressure this week because of the incident involving 6 men, 1 woman, and a South Georgia Lake. Deputy Commissioner Oscar Garrison and COO Billy Scaggs are both out after admitting their part in the festivities.
You know what they weren’t fired for? Negligent Inspection and Failure to Inspect the Peanut Corporation of America plants that sickened many with salmonella tainted peanuts.
And that t’aint right.
