DEA Agents Get Bonuses While Investigated for Attending Sex Parties Funded by Drug Cartels

While DEA agents were under investigation for allegedly attending prostitute sex parties funded by Columbian drug cartels, they received thousands of dollars in bonuses, The Daily Mail reports. 

Half of the agents under investigation received up to $32,000 in bonuses.

Even worse, the regional director who failed to report the parties received a $68,000 bonus in May 2013.

The Justice Department made the discoveries.

The bonuses appear to violate a DEA policy that bars bonuses to employees in the three years following disciplinary actions for “significant misconduct.”

“Today’s Inspector General report raises serious concerns about the disciplinary process at the Drug Enforcement Administration,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said. “Not only did the agents involved in sexual misconduct outlined in a previous report escape appropriate punishment, the majority of them received bonuses or other work perks.”
