Link: Trump appointees allowed terminated EPA staffers to keep receiving salaries, watchdog report says

Two former Environmental Protection Agency officials intentionally kept two staffers on the payroll and allowed them to continue receiving their salaries even after they were terminated, according to a report from the agency’s independent watchdog. The report also found that the former officials, both appointed by former president Donald Trump, committed other fraudulent payroll-related activities — including one giving the other an improper pay increase — that cost the EPA more than $130,000.

This is not even rounding error. It’s just so petty.
