Incompetence. This is something else people need to demand change for because this monster causes the waste of Hugh amounts of money each year. Every state has its story and the federal government as well. Putting unqualified people into positions in charge of tax money especially if they encounter crooks and cons gets very expensive. It seems all our attention is on crooks and not stupid. There's a book out named,

Its not all crooks, its also incapable and incompetent people being put into position by politicians and bureaucrats and needs changed. Even those who oppose occupy should agree to this.
