I am woman watch me steal. Update!

From today's Washington Post:
"Federal authorities think that nearly $50 million was stolen in an embezzlement scheme run out of the D.C. tax office, more than double the amount they had previously uncovered, four sources close to the investigation said.

The corruption at the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue went undetected much longer than initially thought, the sources said, extending back almost 20 years. In addition to tracking the missing money, authorities are looking into gifts suspected of being provided to co-workers and others by the woman accused of leading the scam, former tax office manager Harriette Walters."

I only hope that our Federal Prosecuters get down to the bottom of this and other thefts of taxpayer money. Because people who steal taxpayer money are stealing from everyone of us.
