News Virginian: "VDOT needs outside look"

It this doesn't paint a picture of government waste, I don't know what does. The Waynesboro News Virginian makes the case for an external audit of VDOT- not as a cure-all - but as an important additional tool to helping control costs and increase efficiency.

Government wastes like a fat man breathes, heavier and more frequently with each step. Few agencies are fatter than state departments of transportation, whose waste may be anything but voluntary. Feeding perpetually on taxpayer money, state DOTs are a traditional repository of raw gluttony, with parasitic legions swarming to nibble and sometimes chomp at bounties of billions of dollars. A query that percolates in the commonwealth: Is VDOT different?
