Former Iowa Congressman urges ATF oversight

Former congressman urges ATF oversight hearings

Former Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Jim Lightfoot urges ATF oversight hearings
Pick one or two agencies for the 'Mr. Clean' treatment. Go after them in high profile. You will be surprised how many other agencies will start to clean up their acts.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) would be a good place to start. It is one of the smaller agencies, therefore completing the audits and investigations will take less time. It is an agency that has drifted for nearly 6 years without a permanent Director.
Sounds good to me.

I wondered what happened to old Jim Ross.

Sorry. Nothing less than complete abolition of the BATFEces will satisfy me.

Audit and oversight is a good start that would reign in a rogue gov group.

Getting rid of any gov power - I'd like to see that happen.
