Live by the sword

In an interview on NPR yesterday Marcus Owens, a former agent discussed the current scandal affecting the agency.

I think they’re going to start losing employees. You know, those that are eligible to retire are probably going to wake up tomorrow morning and decide this would be a nice day to just stay home and read the paper and, you know, email their resignation in. Morale will be hurt. I think there will be a huge resource strain just dealing with the investigations themselves. And I think those have to occur to help clear the air.

You’d think that the agency responsible for tax audits would be more psychologically prepared for a reaming. Schadenfreude indeed.
