Federal Government computers left to sit and rot

According to a new report, the U.S Interior Department treated brand new computers just like loaves of bread..
Letting them grow old and stale.

Investigators found almost 140 brand new computers, never touched -- sitting in original boxes at the Interior Department's headquarters in Washington, D.C.

They were purchased between 2009 and 2011, costing taxpayers more than 50-thousand dollars.
And while, that's not a lot of money by Federal Government standards, its not the first time government computers were left to sit and rot.
