Not ONE I.G. THREE of 'Em!

Welcome to Chicago, D.C.

Walpin was dumped for--apparently--doing his job vis-a-vis some New York city college, a jock-turned-rent-seeker in California, and a Chicago rent-seeking outfit which had a "Michelle Obama" serving on its board.

The International Trade Commission fired its I.G., as well.

And in the Treasury Department, run by a fellow who tells jokes to PRChina students:

...Neil Barofsky is embroiled in a dispute with the Obama administration that delayed one recent inquiry and sparked questions about his ability to freely investigate. The disagreement stems from a claim by the Treasury Department that Barofsky is not entirely independent of the agency he is assigned to examine; a claim that has prompted a stern letter from a Republican senator warning that agency officials are encroaching on the integrity of an office created to protect taxpayers.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, sent the letter Wednesday to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner demanding information about a "dispute over certain Treasury documents" that he said were being "withheld" from Barofsky's office on a "specious claim of attorney-client privilege."

TimmyBoy is not only TurboTax challenged. He's plain-English challenged.
