Subject: DCF-Rowlandgate Party-And-Screw II, at the Interior
Date: Sep 11, 2008 1:20 AM
This is like an exact do-over of the Party-and-Screw Crimes of
the DCF with Marc S. Ryan, Peter Ellef and Johnny Handout with
the DCF's Chief Whore, Kristine Ragaglia:
Linda Yelmini, the DAS (Department of Administrative Services) and
the Rowlandgate Bills:
(You have to actually read the Rowlandgate bills to see that they
were about ripping off more children; DCF's budget increased 300%%
in 11 years or so, as demonstrated by Yale's Shelley Gabelle, and
as described in the class action:
My kids actually signed that, BTW, proving Donald Dickson filed
false allegations in order to not pay child support. After Donald
Dickson falsely told the DCF that I intended to drive my congenitally
infected Lyme children
into a lake in order to not pay child support- something
his half-brother perviously did, and therefore coached Donald:
Donald of course left the kids with me for three weeks, whence they
signed the class action. Donald knew the children would never be
killed by myself, you see...
DCF-Rowlandgate was about PARTY and SCREW for the Pediatric Jails
Enterprise - to be known as the commercial entity "TREA" (Tomasso
Ragaglia, Ellef, and Alibozek) - where the DCF evil drunken whores
help the Pediatric Prison's Gang help instruct the other states on
how to kidnap kids - especially black kids since they might otherwise
become adults and procreate (see
AEI's Charles Murray's explainer on why black children need to be
pre-emptively incarcerated: They might start procreating;
and see also, Norwalk Mayor's Bill Collins discuss how Corrupticut
Whitietighties are afraid of black people:
See. It was just like Rowlandgate, where the Chief DCF
whore gave the prisons' gangbangers - John Rowland, the Rising
Star of the Repugnicant Party - whatever they wanted, since
it worked out well for the DCF whore's little union, too.
DCF-Rowlandgate Uncle-Sam-Defrauding Formulary:
Rip off more kids, place them in jail, continually beg Congress for
more money, falsely claiming that all the black people in Corrupticut
were on welfare and using drugs:
"WHEREAS, Black people are black, they must be criminals...."
While the DCF whores themselves had a hangover, at the actual
moment the whores were begging Congress for more money:
"My name is Kristine Ragaglia. And while it is fine and wonderful
for me to be a drunken whore, it is NOT OKAY for the black people to
be drunken whores, so please give us some more money...
Great, ain't it?
PARTY and SCREW, II !!!

Report Says Oil Agency Ran Amok
Interior Dept. Inquiry Finds Sex, Corruption
By Derek Kravitz and Mary Pat Flaherty
Washington Post Staff Writers
Thursday, September 11, 2008; A01
Government officials in charge of collecting billions of dollars worth
from oil and gas companies accepted gifts, steered contracts to
and engaged in drug use and illicit sex with employees of the energy
investigators reported yesterday.
Investigators from the Interior Department's inspector general's
said more than a dozen employees, including the former director of the
program, took meals, ski trips, sports tickets and golf outings from
The report alleges that the former director, Gregory W. Smith, also
than $30,000 from improper outside work.
The report from Inspector General Earl E. Devaney contains fresh
the practices at the beleaguered royalty-in-kind program of Interior's
Management Service, which last year collected more than $4 billion
worth of oil
and natural gas from companies given contracts to tap energy on
federal and Indian
lands and offshore. The revelations come as Congress is set to
the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and areas off the coast of Florida
The royalty-in-kind program, based near Denver, allows energy
companies to pay the
government in oil and gas, rather than cash, for the privilege of
drilling on government
land. It has been the subject of multiple investigations since 2006 by
Department's secretary, its inspector general, the Justice Department
for alleged mismanagement and conflicts of interest.
In the report released yesterday, investigators said they "discovered
of substance abuse and promiscuity" in which employees accepted
"with prodigious frequency." The report cited one e-mail from a Shell
Pipeline representative asking a woman in the royalty office to attend
festivities" at a Houston Texans football game: "You're invited .
. . have you and the girls meet at my place at 6am for bubble baths
and final prep.
Besides Shell, the energy company employees mentioned in the report
worked for Chevron,
Hess and Gary-Williams Energy. The social outings detailed in the
alcohol-, cocaine- and marijuana-filled parties where certain
employees of the Minerals
Management Service were nicknamed the "MMS Chicks" by the energy
The companies paid for federal workers to attend football and baseball
Tour events, Colorado ski trips, paintball outings and "treasure
Democrats who have opposed expanded drilling seized on the report as
the debate. "This all shows the oil industry holds shocking sway over
and even key federal employees," said Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), who
more exploration offshore but not in Alaska. "This is why we must not
Big Oil's agenda to be jammed through Congress."
The current director of the Minerals Management Service, Randall B.
that he takes the report "very seriously" and added that the small
of people implicated "does not represent a culture" in an agency of
1,700 employees. The royalty-in-kind program, where the lapses cited
in the report
occurred, has about 50 employees.
Many employees identified in the report told investigators that they
think ethics rules applied to them because of their "unique" role in
agency and that they needed to socialize with industry representatives
intelligence," according to the report. Those employees, some of whom
been transferred to different offices, have been recommended for
The inspector general's release comprised three separate reports,
one devoted to the program's former director, Smith, 56, who resigned
It alleges that Smith improperly worked part time for Geomatrix
Oakland, Calif.-based environmental and engineering firm, and marketed
to government clients.
Additionally, the report said, Smith had an inappropriate sexual
a subordinate whom he paid to buy cocaine, allegedly promising her a
in return. The report stated that Smith admitted to the sexual
Smith, who now works for a private oil company in Denver, did not
respond to requests
for comment. His lawyer, Stephen Peters, said that he has not read the
that the allegations about drug use and sexual liaisons "sound very
and fabricated. . . . Greg Smith was a very loyal and dedicated
increased revenue under his watch.
Investigators referred their findings to federal prosecutors, who did
Smith with any criminal wrongdoing and declined to comment on their
Justice officials also declined to comment on their decision not to
pursue a criminal
case against the highest-ranking official named in the report, Lucy
former associate director of the Minerals Management Service, who
worked in Washington.
She is accused of improperly arranging a million-dollar deal for two
Denett, 55, the wife of Paul A. Denett, the procurement policy
the White House Office of Management and Budget, retired from
Jan. 31. She declined to comment on the report. She told investigators
she had a
"personal issue." People familiar with the investigation said health
were a factor in the decision not to prosecute her.
The Justice Department's decision not to charge Denett or Smith
created a rift
with Interior officials, according to sources with knowledge of the
One of the two retired employees, Jimmy W. Mayberry, pleaded guilty in
July to a
federal conflict-of-interest charge related to the investigation.
Milton K. Dial, has been under investigation for similar conflict-of-
according to two sources with knowledge of the matter.
According to the report, Mayberry discussed with Denett how he could
back to work" for the agency after his retirement in January 2003.
Before he left, Mayberry created a job for himself by writing the job
and the criteria for selecting the winning bidder, court documents
show. He started
a company out of his Texas home and was awarded a $150,000 contract in
He later hired Dial, the report said. Mayberry's firm collected
of contracts. Mayberry and Dial did not return phone calls seeking
attorney, Danny C. Onorato, also declined to comment.
The royalty-in-kind program, which started as a small pilot project a
has been touted as a way to simplify the way oil and gas companies pay
for the right
to drill on federal land and offshore. Instead of calculating the
profit from a
well, they can simply give the government one-eighth to one-sixth of
take from the ground.
Revenue rose quickly, from $1.5 billion in 2004 to $4.3 billion last
But the growth occurred "in an environment with relatively
oversight," the congressionally convened Royalty Policy Committee said
December report. Previous reports have said that companies were
allowed to revise
their million-dollar bids for projects indiscriminately, that
routinely failed to seek out legal advice on complicated deals and
that the agency
used outdated computers and a $150 million software program that
resulted in royalty
money going uncollected.
Lee Ellen Helfrich, a lawyer who represented states and tribes
entitled to a cut
of the royalties, said it was nearly impossible to get accurate
numbers from the
agency. "They kept hemming and hawing," she said.
In late 2006 questions arose over its handling of leases written in
1998 and 1999
that allowed major oil companies drilling in the Gulf of Mexico to
of dollars in royalty payments.
Former Interior Department auditors accused the agency of failing to
"We weren't allowed to audit them. It was kind of disturbing," said
Bobby L. Maxwell, an auditor who sued the federal government for not
royalties. "You couldn't really see what was going on."
Yesterday, Luthi, the minerals agency director, said in a news
conference that the
harm done by the royalty employees was to "public trust," adding, "I
do not believe Americans have lost financially" as a result of the
activities. However, in a later interview he acknowledged that "it is
to tell" whether financial considerations were given to firms that
to federal employees, and he said the contracts will be audited.
