Getting Screwed......

We've all felt the pinch of out-of-control fuel prices, but who knew that what while we were getting screwed at the pump by the oil companies, Department of Interior employees in charge of oil royalties were, well, getting screwed by oil company employees. (image: the new Phallic symbol)

U.S. oil officials accused of sex with energy company workers

WASHINGTON - Government officials handling billions of dollars in oil royalties improperly engaged in sex with employees of energy companies they were dealing with and received numerous gifts from them, federal investigators said Wednesday.

The alleged transgressions involve 13 former and current Interior Department employees in Denver and Washington. Their alleged improprieties include rigging contracts, working part-time as private oil consultants, and having sexual relationships with — and accepting golf and ski trips and dinners from — oil company employees, according to three reports released Wednesday by the Interior Department's inspector general.

Hey, I hope they at least got a kiss out of it, nothing like getting F*&$ and not getting kissed.
