Ain't They Supposed to be Spying On Us?

The county Homeland Security office in Memphis got a good going over from the FBI after someone bugged the place. From the Commercial Appeal:

Officials became suspicious and had the FBI sweep the office for bugs after a local television station said it possessed "damaging and embarrassing" audiotapes that were secretly recorded and given to the station.

With homeland security tax money going to popcorn factories, widescreen plasma screen televisions, and gym memberships -- it's hard to figure out what qualifies as "damaging and embarassing."

The Commercial Appeal got hold of a chain of emails that suggest the FBI suspects a former interim agency director. (Commercial Appeal)
