The Federal Agency Scandal Manual

This page will be continually updated with scandals committed by unelected bureaucrats inside the giant three-letter agencies who are targeting the American people. See a scandal we missed? Tweet us your idea @FreedomWorks.

American families are facing the consequences of Congress’s spending addiction. It is time Congress prioritizes the American taxpayer and ensures that their hard-earned tax dollars are spent wisely in ways that will bolster economic growth and reduce the size of the government.

Department of Homeland Security

Department of Justice

Department of Transportation

Department of Defense

General Services Administration

  • Few federal employees have returned to work— these office buildings sit empty
  • Why should federal employees be allowed to access confidential information from their homes? Is this not a security risk?

Department of Treasury

Department of Commerce

Department of Health and Human Services

  • HHS misused million in emergency preparedness dollars– to be used for things like Ebola, Zika, and Covid– for totally unrelated expenses
  • Rampant healthcare fraud— HHS allowing emergency rooms to overcharge for patients who should not even be there, to the tune of $1.8 billion
  • Sec. Beccera pushing a woke political agenda when he should be focused on doing his job

Social Security Administration

Department of Veteran Affairs

Department of Agriculture

Department of Energy

  • The Department of Energy is responsible for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). 
  • Thanks to the DOE and Biden’s decision to drain the reserve to lower gas prices last year (which Biden’s policies are no doubt responsible for), the SPR is now at its lowest level since 1984
  • DOE has prioritized high profile diversity hires like (former) employee Sam Brinton, who while collecting a taxpayer funded paycheck, allegedly stole luggage from two airports amounting to $2000. Brinton currently faces two grand larceny charges

Department of Interior

Department of Labor

  • The Department of Labor has made it even harder, and in some cases nearly impossible to hire independent contractors, restricting the earning potential of 50 million Americans who choose independent work. 
  • Such rules are aimed to benefit labor unions over workers, and are reminiscent of intentionally ambiguous Obama era policies.

Republicans in Congress must hold every agency accountable and cut spending to agencies when they behave badly.
