    Lax FBI Money Controls Lead to Shutdown of Surveillance, Justice Department Audit Finds

    http://www.rawstory.com/news/mochila/FBI_wiretaps_dropped_due_to_unpaid__01102008.html

    Telephone companies have cut off FBI wiretaps used to eavesdrop on suspected criminals because of the bureau's repeated failures to pay phone bills on time.
    A Justice Department audit released Thursday blamed the lost connections on the FBI's lax oversight of money used in undercover investigations. Poor supervision of the program also allowed one employee to steal $25,000.
    In at least one case, a wiretap used in a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act investigation "was halted due to untimely payment," the audit found. FISA wiretaps are used in the government's most sensitive and secretive criminal and intelligence investigations, and allow eavesdropping on suspected terrorists or spies.

    HOT MESS!
