The Justice Department is mulling over what to do with eight employees who tried to get their children or other relatives hired by the agency, the Washington Post reports [2], citing a study released Thursday by the department’s inspector general.

Officials accused of the nepotism violations are career employees, not politicians, and include the director and two assistant directors of human resources; the director and deputy director of facilities and administrative services; and a senior adviser to a deputy assistant attorney general in the division.

“The department takes seriously the findings in this report, and we are moving immediately to address the report’s findings,” Gina Talamona, a Justice Department spokeswoman, told the Post.

Talamona pledged quick action and said nepotism would not be tolerated.
