ATF *finally* cleans house after Fast and Furious / Project Gunwalker

December 2, 2012

Well, it’s long overdue.

Now that the election is over and Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t have to worry about his Fast and Furious buddies breaking bad on him, he’s cleaned house.

Well, sort of.

Some of the key players have been dismissed, but they get to keep their full pensions.

We suppose hush money needs to be paid.

Breitbart has the story:

Top ATF officials involved in Operation Fast and Furious had their government security clearances revoked and others were fired, demoted, or transferred.

Former ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division Bill Newell, former ATF Special Agent in Charge of Operations in the West Bill McMahon, and former Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division George Gillett were fired. Former Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jim Needles and Field Supervisor David Voth were demoted. Lead case agent Hope McAllister was placed on leave and transferred out of Phoenix.

Agent Voth was the subject of Fortune Magazine’s infamous article about Fast & Furious. In it Katherine Eban turned Agent Voth into the victim and smeared whistleblower John Dodson. After it was published, Agent Dodson demanded the article be retracted. Fortune refused, and Agent Dodson is now suing them for $75,000.

In August it was revealed Agent McMahon was collecting a six figure salary from JP Morgan in the Philippines. JP Morgan owns the ATF’s credit cards. At the same time, he was on paid leave by the ATF.

Despite these developments, the agents will receive full retirement benefits.
