Peace Corps Online: Peace Corps News: Special Reports: August 10, 2004 - PC changes "cash in lieu" travel policy: Strange

Seems awfully odd that PC budget increased $30 million, which led to a big push for recruitment, but now there's a budget crunch. Placement is cutting programs, recruitment is being told there's no funding. Post has to do more with less. I've also heard that Director Vasquez enjoys traveling luxuriously and often.

Do I hear another Orange County money mismanagement scandal for the embattled director?

Anyone check out Volunteers for Prosperity, Bush's international volunteer program? Look at, it's almost indiscernible from Peace Corps in the type of applicant it would attract. We need to wake up here people.

There's only one person the Bush Administration hates more than FDR, and that's JFK.
