GAO Throws Good Money After Bad

June 14, 2002

So the government spent "hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars" to discover that the Clinton transition team cost $15,000 in damage ("Clinton Transition Left $15,000 Damage, GAO Says," June 12). I wonder if anyone is looking into how to prop up our stock market, which is costing Americans hundreds of millions of dollars a day. Or isn't that political enough, since Clinton can't be blamed for that?

Your story failed to mention that the General Accounting Office itself was unable to conclude whether the 2001 transition was worse than previous ones, and that similar pranks occurred in the 1993 transition from President Bush to President Clinton. I suppose we can expect similar damage in the next transition from President Bush to President Clinton.
