A government watchdog found that 78 political appointees of President Barack Obama managed to burrow into career government jobs over a six-year period.
A Government Accountability Office report obtained by The Washington Times Wednesday shows that seven of Mr. Obamas political appointees switched to career jobs without obtaining necessary approval from the Office of Personnel Management. Of those, four were later denied the jobs by OPM and three left their posts.
Congressional Republicans warned Mr. Obama last year against moving political appointees into career positions, and President Trump has stated frequently that he believes some employees in the federal workforce are Obama holdovers working against his agenda.

Drain the swamp!
Arrest, indict, try, convict, and sentence these kakistocrats!!
There is no excuse for our adminisration to permit this. Move them top Alaska of fire them but get them away from doing this sabotage. Quit playing business as usual and get them OUT!!
Abolish their “positions” and transfer them to janitorial duties.
The entirety of Fedzilla has been completely corrupted by eight years of the Kenyan from Indonesia being allowed to usurp the Presidency.
There were very good reason for the founders to insist on a natural born citizen, some one born here of citizen parents, solely a US citizen with no possibility of being anything else.
Naturally a US citizen as there is no other alternative when born here of citizen parents.
What the hell is the President waiting for if they did not follow the correct process to get those jobs??? They should have ALL been fired on Jan. 20!
There has to be a serious typo there. I would believe 78,000. Even 780,000 is believable. But 78 is just plain preposterous.
Fire all Obama czars!
Just getting their own reparations...
Blood-sucking ticks throughout the land hang down their heads in shame, knowing that they’ll be associated with this crowd of parasites.
Burrowing... like hookworms.
There aren't *that* many presidential appointees - fortunately. Well, at least as provided for "officially". Speaking of, has anyone kept tabs on that barge-load of "czars" since November? I do wonder where they've slunk off to.
I was thinking the same thing.
“without obtaining necessary approval from the Office of Personnel Management”
Good point about all those czars. Not only did we not hear anything about them leaving, we never once heard about them doing anything at all. Were they pure 100% no-show patronage jobs?
You just know that each and every one of these appointees had to pass an ideological purity test.
Fire every last one. ASAP!!
Is the next article on the just-discovered wetness of water?
Amazing uses for the sun: Warmth and Growing Things!
The so called “czars” I’ve wondered what has happened to them ....hmmmm
