#VA Horror Stories, vol. 1: taxpayer $ for exotic dancers?

When VA employees travel for various reasons (trainings, details in other offices, et cetera), their flight and lodging is paid for and they are generally given a per diem on a government credit card for expenses like food. Presumably the use of a credit card allows the government to track purchases and flag inappropriate uses of government funds.

Veterans Benefits Administration “Rockstar” VSCM at the Cleveland Regional Office, Charles Moore, has reportedly advised new employees who are preparing to go to “challenge training” after being hired on how to avoid scrutiny for their per diem spending. Apparently he told employees to withdraw the full amount from ATMs and use the cash to go to strip clubs. Interestingly enough, this wasn’t said in secret to just a couple employees, but instead in a meeting with all the new employees scheduled to go to the training. I suppose there is no expectation of accountability in VA middle management.

Pannenberg’s conception of retroactive continuity ultimately means that history flows fundamentally from the future into the past, that the future is not basically a product of the past.
