A whopping 95% of employees at the Department of Homeland Security’s offices in Northern Virginia are accused of hiking their pay by 25% through overtime abuse, the Washington Post reports, citing a report from the Office of Special Counsel.

Special Counsel Carolyn N. Lerner said allegations found that CBP employees “improperly claim” overtime “up to two hours a day, every day.”

“We all greatly appreciate the work being done by the men and women at DHS,” subcommittee chairman Jon Tester (D-Mont.) said. “However, the employee actions and misuse of public funds outlined in OSC’s report are unacceptable.”
