In what can probably be classified as the least shocking news of the decade, a new report, backed by eye witness evidence, came out that the oil companies have been enjoying one hell of a ride over the past, oh let’s say, 7 1/2 years, give or take.
A report, conducted by the Interior Department’s inspector general and released earlier this month, found that employees at the agency received improper gifts from energy industry officials and engaged with them in illegal drug use and inappropriate sexual relations. It looked at activities at the agency from 2003 through 2006.
The inspector general’s 27-page summary says that nearly a third of the roughly 60 people in Maxwell’s former office received gifts and gratuities from oil industry executives.
Two received improper, if not illegal, gifts at least 135 times, the report says. It goes on to describe a wild atmosphere in which some staff members admitted using cocaine and marijuana.
In addition, two female workers at the Minerals Management Service were known as the “MMS chicks” and both told investigators they had sex with oil industry officials they were supposed to be auditing.
OK, I really need to start hanging out with more Minerals Management Service chicks. Anyone want to start a pool to keep track of exactly when all of these non-existent punishments will be handed down, not to mention when the American people will likely see the $500 million in royalties owed to them by oil companies that they literally sex, drugged and rock & rolled their way out of? Good luck with that.
