Claire McCaskill tweets her disgust over latest contractor scandal
The senator has been tweeting her reactions to the news that some of the guards at State Department facilities in Afghanistan allegedly treated their posts like they were on spring break, Kabul. A whistleblower informed the Project on Government Oversight, a nonpartisan nonprofit, that employees of ArmorGroup North America were drinking booze out of each others’ ass cracks, abusing the locals and generally making a mockery of the company’s 5-year, $189 million dollar contract with the State Department.
ArmorGroup North America is a subsidiary of a ginormous contractor named Wackenhut. Wackin’ hut, indeed.
We had hearing in
June on security contract at our embassy in Afghanstn.Today new info
out that confirm serious problms w/this contractor.
whistleblower is a key to accountability.Another contracting
scandal.I’ve sent letter to State asking for full investigation.
Testimony given in front of my sub comm on contracting appears to be misleading at best.
POGO once again earns its reformer stripes. #ChippedArmor
McCaskill wrote a letter to Patrick Kennedy at the State Department, saying if the allegations are true, they “raise questions
regarding [ArmorGroup’s] performance of the contract and the
Department’s management and oversight,” and asking for a thorough review of ArmorGroup’s performance.
Oh and hey! Wackenhut’s hiring! I dare someone to show up to the interview in a coconut g-string.
