    Default IRS Deputy Seen Aiding $500 Million in Contracts to Pal

    A small technology contractor that won more than $500 million in Internal Revenue Service awards in less than a year had a “cozy” relationship with an agency official, according to a congressional staff report.

    Greg Roseman, an IRS deputy director, may have “influenced the selection process” to benefit his friend, Braulio Castillo, president of Washington-based Strong Castle Inc., according to the House committee document. The two exchanged frequent phone calls and text messages, the report shows.

    The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, led by Representative Darrell Issa, a California Republican, is investigating how the small business, formed in late 2011, managed to attract so much contract business. The panel plans to hold a hearing tomorrow.

    “What has led to the huge discrepancy between the potential for $500 million in contracts with the IRS alone and the mere $465,780 awarded by all other federal government agencies?” the report’s authors asked. “The difference is that the IRS -- where Strong Castle received well over 99 percent of its 2012 revenues -- employs Castillo’s long-time friend, Greg Roseman, who oversaw each and every contract awarded to Strong Castle by the IRS in 2012.”

    so now Roseman pleads the Fifth and we come to find out that Castillo applied for a contract saying that he was a disabled vet, when in fact he suffered a twisted ankle at a military prep school while playing football

    This stinks to high heaven

    It's slightly worse....

    Castillo suffered a twisted ankle in a high school prep program for the military academy. Then he went on to play college football on the twisted ankle. Now he's getting a contract under a veteran's set aside program. I'm not certain he isn't getting disability as well. His front office is located in a locale that has urban blight to the point that he was eligible for a second level of Federal contracting clearance. His rather expensive home however is in VA in an upscale suburb.

    Isn't the contract for $500 million a year?

    Is there anybody in the IRS who had any moral compass?
