Misconduct isn’t a disqualifier for bonuses and extra time off, at least at the IRS. More than 1,100 employees at the agency, who either didn’t pay their taxes or under reported on them, still received more than $1 million in bonuses. This is from an inspector general’s report that revealed even larger problems. Tom Shoop, editor in chief at Government Executive magazine, joins In Depth with Francis Rose to talk about this latest self-inflicted image problem for federal employees.
