The Hill ADMINISTRATION May 24, 2021 – 09:26 AM EDT – Commerce Department unit gathered intel on employees, census critics: report BY JOSEPH CHOI — “A security unit within the Commerce Department routinely overstepped its legal limits by collecting information on hundreds of people both inside and outside the department, investigating their offices at night and searching through their emails, The Washington Post reports.” […] The ITMS “has been allowed to operate far outside the bounds of federal law enforcement norms and has created an environment of paranoia and retaliation at the Department,” John Costello, former deputy assistant secretary of intelligence and security at Commerce, told the Post. According to Costello, the office “rests on questionable legal authority and has suffered from poor management and lack of sufficient legal and managerial oversight for much of its existence.” […] Lee also reportedly required new hires to attend a training program he had devised in the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia in which agents would have to follow him as he drove erratically on mountain roads.“
This post is an excuse to put up this hilarious video once again. Any excuse will do. And, yes, the more serious side of this post isn’t a joke, but I think humor is always important.
