    Report: AmeriCorps Feared IGs Push for Further Probe into Case Involving Obama Suppo

    Report: AmeriCorps Feared IG?s Push for Further Probe into Case Involving Obama Supporter - Political News - FOXNews.com

    Former Inspector General Gerald Walpin's determination to investigate further the alleged misuse of AmeriCorps funds may have led President Obama to fire him, a Republican member of the board overseeing the volunteer agency alleged to a Washington newspaper.

    If true, the assertion contradicts an explanation provided by White House, which said Walpin, 77, was "confused" and "disoriented" at a recent meeting of the board, exhibited a "lack of candor" and "engaged in other troubling and inappropriate conduct."

    Meanwhile, a bipartisan group of officials -- including four former U.S. attorneys, three former federal judges, one former attorney general and a former counsel to President Clinton -- sent a letter to the Senate Wednesday defending the integrity and competence of Walpin.

    Hmmm let see if you go after any of Mr. Obama friends you could end up fired even thou it now appears you were doing your Job that Congress set out for you.

    This story might yet have some legs.

    Also lol-worthy: Fire some USA's who serve at your pleasure, it's a federal investigation. Fire an IG who does not, and it's brushed under the table.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
