The Education Department's Inspector General Means Business
On our former blog, we noted that the IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division put out a request to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns.
This morning the Drudge Report has this incredulous headline about a related request: Dept of Education Needs 27 Short-Barreled Shotguns?
According to the Federal Business Opportunities website, the request is for:
27 REMINGTON BRAND MODEL 870 POLICE 12/14P MOD GRWC XS4 KXCS SF. RAMAC #24587 GAUGE: 12 BARREL: 14" - PARKERIZED CHOKE: MODIFIED SIGHTS: GHOST RING REAR WILSON COMBAT; FRONT - XS CONTOUR BEAD SIGHT STOCK: KNOXX REDUCE RECOIL ADJUSTABLE STOCK FORE-END: SPEEDFEED SPORT-SOLID - 14" LOP
But it isn’t as though the Department is trying to outdo Catholic school nuns in dispensing discipline. The request is for the Department’s Office of Inspector General. I would assume this is for their agents investigating serious cases of fraud.
