‘Stunning’: EPA had to pay $55K to get child molester to retire

Don’t think we need any more proof that the big government bureaucracy is out of control.


From Fox News: The Environmental Protection Agency was forced to pay $55,000 to get an employee to retire because the EPA was unable to fire him, even though he was a convicted child molester who also imitated a police officer, officials testified Wednesday.

The settlement was discussed at a House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on EPA employee misconduct Wednesday. Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said that was one of the most egregious cases of employee misconduct and misuse of taxpayer dollars.

Stan Meiburg, acting deputy administrator at the EPA, said the agency attempted to fire the employee but the Merit Systems Protection Board — an independent agency that acts as an appeals board for employees across the federal government and adjudicates personnel decisions — overturned the decision. Instead, the agency paid the employee $55,000 to retire and leave the agency, he said. That shocked Chaffetz.

“It’s just pretty stunning,” he said. “How do we need to change the Merit Systems Protection Board, because we’re not protecting the American taxpayer and we’re not protecting the employees who have to sit next to this freak of a pervert.”

  1. Ridiculous that the merit system would condone the man’s behavior and help fight for his overturn. With all the power the EPA has harassing every day citizens and they are powerless on this issue. The EPA has enough power to avoid getting into trouble for purposely contaminating a river in Colorado.
    And the EPA harassing ranchers that have legal and permitted ponds on their property by trying to force them to empty them. But on this issue, they are powerless, give me a break.
    I remember a few years back BO and Jarrett bragging they were going to use the EPA to shut down industry in our country. They said this right after their victory in the 2012 election.
    Powerless, my rear. And to reward $55,000 for bad behavior, this crazy country is upside down.
