What you learn in Chicago apparently goes with you to Washington DC. Because it's good to fire an Inspector General who blows the whistle on fraud by one of your supporters. Even when that supporter ends up settling with the U.S. Attorney and giving back half the money.
Honesty. It's a firing offense.
(By the way, although the link within the story I linked above goes to the Fox News site, if you look carefully, you'll see it's actually an Associated Press story. Just for your reference.)
