Too soon? Never!

A congressman asked, “What do you need to make it so that this wouldn’t have happened?”

“So there are two things, sir,” said Miller. “And I appreciate the kind words for our people because we are incredibly hard working and honest group, frankly, and that seems to be forgotten in all of this. With respect to political activity, it would be a wonderful thing to get better rules, to get more clear rules. And in terms of our ability to get to this work it would be good to have a little budget that would allow us to get more than the number of people we have to do 70,000 applications and to do our job and looking at whether an organization is tax exempt or not.”

Because everybody knows that the best way to stop corruption is to just throw more money at it.

What would a larger budget have accomplished? From the sound of Miller’s answer it would have allowed them to harass political undesirables at a quicker, more efficient pace.

As for the “rules,” if those still aren’t clear, so much for the expensive Star Trek training video.
