Trillion dollar crime spree?

The Treasury department has been handing out trillions of dollars as part of its TARP program. It is natural that this would attract the criminal element, as RTT News reports:
Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general (SIGTARP) to oversee the Treasury Department's Troubled Asset Relief Program said his office has initiated almost 20 preliminary and full criminal investigations.
Treasury is not cooperating with the SIGTARP investigators' requests for accountability.

The full SIGTARP report is here (PDF).

PREVIOUSLY: President Obama decided that the only person qualified to run Treasury was a tax-cheat.
