Several employees of the Minerals Management Service’s Lake Charles, La., district office admitted to accepting gifts from oil and gas companies the agency regulates.

This comes from a just-released Interior Department inspector general report.

On top of this, two employees also admitted to using illegal drugs. Investigators also report that they found e-mails on an employee computer containing “inappropriate humor and pornography.”
