The same story: overpaid government employees taking advantage of perks, travelling to a lavish resort for “training” that end up drunk, dancing, and naked in the pool after hours – sadly it is the rule rather than the exception.
Chief Operating Officer Billy Skaggs and Oscar Garrison, the director of the food safety division for the Georgia Dept. of Agriculture, stepped down after a preliminary investigation found they led a drunken “fraternity party” during an agency training session that ended in co-ed skinny dipping at a South Georgia resort, according to a whistle-blowing employee. Skaggs was on the payroll with the Department for $96,000 + and Garrison pulled down a cool $80,000 per year.
According to documents The Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained, dozens of agency employees attended a training seminar at the Lake Blackshear Resort and Golf Club near Cordele in September. On the night of Sept. 17, several employees attended an after-hours gathering at a cabin shared by Skaggs, Garrison and Trey Joyner, another department employee.
Can anyone please tell me what the hell the Department of Agriculture does - other than count cows, get drunk and take their clothes off?
