Cooking the Books

Published: February 26, 2009, Author: JayTaber

While the collusion by Department of Interior officials with energy companies in embezzling Mineral Management Service royalties due American Indians is a national disgrace, the ongoing fraud at Interior is not limited to Native American accounts. The federal government controls 20% of the land in the United States, and the minerals extracted from that land belong to the American people; when Interior cooks the books and cuts backroom deals on these sales, the US Treasury is shortchanged. Think about that when politicians say we can’t afford healthcare or quality education for all.
