Go right now to D.C. Wire and read what reporter Dan Keating turned up in a records request: Harriette Walters kissing Nat Gandhi‘s ass months before her $50 million embezzlement scheme was discovered. David Nakamura provides some context.

In April 2007, Gandhi decided not to accept an offer to become Amtrak’s CFO, and he told his employees in an e-mail about his decision. Walters replied to that e-mail, writing, “Sir, I would like to say thank you for keeping us inform of a decision that would have impacted the employees within the CFO Cluster. I appreciate that you respected us to provide follow up to the recent news reports that we read and heard over the pat week. Thank You!”

Replied Gandhi, “Thank you. Keep up the good work.”
