Two agency inspectors general got salaries that busted legal limits on political employee pay

The inspectors general for two intelligence agencies were each overpaid… by tens of thousands of dollars, between 2016 and 2020. That’s according to an internal DoD memo a whistleblower supplied to Empower Oversight, an outside watchdog group. There’s no clear evidence anyone intentionally did anything wrong. But there’s also no evidence the money’s been repaid, or that the matter’s been properly investigated. Jason Foster is founder and president of Empower Oversight. He talked with Federal News Network’s Jared Serbu about what we do and don’t know.
