Cronyism, 'Wasteful' Spending Accusations Roil Government Publishing Office

According to an internal watchdog report obtained by NPR, two officials at the U.S. Government Publishing Office — previously known as the Government Printing Office — allegedly violated federal laws and regulations by filling agency jobs with unqualified candidates, including an official's son. The GPO's Office of Inspector General has not finalized its findings, but in June, it sent an interim report to the joint congressional committee that oversees the agency.

Critique (?)

Might be interesting if the investigation was complete...other wise, the whole presented situation is a little 'gossipy' with no ending

Maybe I should critique your attempt at humor?

It's a source document that anyone can review. It's more of a building block for an investigation, but the topic itself smells like old fashioned 60 minutes.
