WASHINGTON- A senior Energy Department official was actively involved in getting summer jobs for his three college-aged kids, according to an internal investigation. The actions appear to violate federal rules that bar officials from securing government jobs for relatives. The Energy Department Inspector General's report does not name the official but says he is a senior staff member in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the agency is considering "appropriate corrective action." The report says the employee contacted 12 other Energy Department leaders from seven different programs about summer jobs and all three of his kids were hired.
