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.
