The Interior Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a report Thursday confirming several allegations of unethical behavior against a senior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) official.
BLM law enforcement manager Dan Love gave friends gifts of items taken as evidence in a BLM investigation and ordered an assistant to delete any incriminating emails after Love received an OIG request for documents related to the allegations, according to the OIG report.
“After numerous reports substantiating serious allegations of misconduct including the destruction of federal records, defiance of congressional document requests and misuse of ancient artifacts under investigation as office decor, I expect Interior to hold Dan Love accountable,” Chairman of the House Committee of Natural Resources Rep. Rob Bishop said in a statement.
“I look forward to seeing how this Administration responds to the unethical behavior uncovered by the report,” Bishop continued. “We must take steps to restore trust in federal law enforcement officers and hold employees accountable for their mismanagement of our taxpayer resources.”
