ATF Director Resigns Amid Spending Probe

By Dan Eggen
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, August 5, 2006; Page A02

The director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced his resignation yesterday, six months after the launch of an internal investigation into questionable spending on a new headquarters and other items during his tenure.

Carl J. Truscott, a 22-year veteran of the Secret Service who took over as ATF chief in 2004, was under fire for his spending and management practices at a time when the agency was considering sharp cuts in the number of new cars, bulletproof vests and other basics it provides agents.

1. "I need to spend more time with my 'family'" - Truscott
The generic excuse of all the corrupt republicon cronies

Thanks a pantload, Commander AWOL, for appointing another Total Whack Off Deviant Republicon to screw America, and line the pockets of repulicon crony hacks.
