Work for the Department of the Interior and get Free Paintball

There's a big scandal brewing over at the Department of the Interior. Or, to put it more accurately, the pots been boiling over for some time and a new report is making it clear what kind of stuff is happening over there.

Among other things the New York Times reports that officials of the Interior Department accepted "golf, ski and paintball outings." I find myself wondering if Barney Stinson works over there.

It wasn't all fun and games though; the same paragraph notes that officials were also taken to a Toby Kieth concert.

I also love this bit.
In discussions with investigators, the report said, Mr. Smith acknowledged buying cocaine from his secretary and having a sexual encounter with her at her home, but denied discussing drugs at work. He also denied telling anyone to lie, saying that he only told people that “no one has a right to know what I do on my personal time.”
"Ixnay on the ugs-dray. We can talk about that after work." Yeah and if you are committing a crime, which I'm pretty sure Cocaine use qualifies as, you don't really get to make the personal time argument.
