Senior ATF Official Accused of Collecting Pay From Private Sector Pay While On Leave

 A top official of the ATF who was involved in the controversial gun operation “Fast and Furious” is working full time for investment bank J.P. Morgan while also collecting a government salary, according to two Republican lawmakers, Sari Horwitz of the Washington Post  reports.

Deputy Assistant ATF Director William McMahon has been receiving two salaries simultaneously, two Republican senators wrote in a letter to acting ATF director, B. Todd Jones.

What’s worse, they said, ATF was allowing McMahon to remain on leave and stay on the payroll for another four or five months to become eligible for retirement, according to the Post.

“ATF has essentially facilitated McMahon’s early retirement and ability to double dip for nearly half a year by receiving two full-time paychecks — one from the taxpayer and one from the private sector,” wrote Sen. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa).
