Ethical Violations and Misconduct by Bureau of Land Management Officials Implicate SLC Ut SAIC Dan Love

 

The Inspector General's Office initiated an investigation in October 2015, after receiving two anonymous complaints concerning a Supervisory Agent, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Office of Law Enforcement and Security (OLES), Salt Lake City, UT.

 

Salvatore Lauro’s Knowledge of the Supervisory Agent’s Actions include this statement.

“in fact we probably could have written it
before it happened because he’s had like eight anonymous complaints in the last two years.”

The agent also is accused of bragging that he “owned” the national director of BLM’s Office of Law Enforcement and Security and that nothing would happen to him.
According to the report, Love told the woman she better do damage control after the investigation began in 2015. Once he was removed from his position, she said he told her: “You know, if you don’t side with me, grenades are going to go off and you’ll get hit.”

The Supervisory Agent's Misconduct Charges Include, Favor from Prohibited Source at Nevada's Burning Man Event, Agent Seeks Favor from BRC for Special Passes to (BME), Misuse of OLES Personnel and BLM-Procured, All-Terrain and Utility Type Vehicle, Agent’s Disregard for the Accommodations Directive and Allegations of Meals at BLM’s Expense, Agent’s Misuse of a Government-owned Vehicle, Lodging for the Supervisory Agent’s Family, including Agent’s Influence On the Hiring Process and Reference Checks for the Supervisory Agent’s Friend, and the Agent’s Attempts to Influence Employee Testimony and Employee Concerns of Retaliation.

A link to the report released to the public is included in the article below.


SALT LAKE CITY Deseret News Reports — The Interior Department’s Office of Inspector General investigated an unnamed Bureau of Land Management supervisory agent in Salt Lake City for more than a year on ethics complaints, with the independent panel concluding that breaches had occurred.

 

The agent, which the Deseret News has confirmed is Dan Love through a source familiar with the investigation, is accused of using his position to secure preferential treatment for his family during the 2015 Burning Man event in Nevada, including using federal law enforcement officers as personal escorts for their safety, using his BLM vehicle to transport his girlfriend and allowing her to share overnight BLM lodging with him.

 

The national office of the BLM released a statement on the investigation, saying it takes the allegations of misconduct seriously.

 

“These types of allegations do not align with our mission or the professionalism and dedication of our 10,000 employees doing essential work for America’s public lands each and every day. This is an internal personnel matter under review by the BLM, and we have no additional information to provide at this time,” said spokesman Michael Richardson.

 

Efforts to reach Love for comment were unsuccessful and BLM officials had no additional information on his current status of employment with the agency.

 

According to the Office of Inspector General report, Burning Man organizers said Love asked for, and was granted, special access for him and his family inside a restricted area to watch the “Man Burn event” in an area typically reserved for event organizers and the pyrotechnics crew.

 

Because of scrutiny surrounding the agent’s role in a request for a $1 million “luxury” compound to take care of BLM needs for the event, the report said the supervisory agent purchased tickets from the attorney representing the event’s for-profit subsidiary and at full price because he knew people “would be looking.”

 

Although unnamed in the inspector general’s report, Love — who was the top cop for Utah and Nevada before being promoted to a national position — was linked to many of the requests associated with the luxury compound, according to emails obtained in an investigative news story cited in the report.

 

The Office of Inspector General, which is tasked with independent oversight and accountability of the Interior Department, launched the investigation in September of 2015 based on a pair of anonymous complaints.

 

Love has been at the center of multiple complaints by rural sheriff offices in Utah about the deteriorating relationship between the BLM and their officers. 

They’ve cited Love in particular for an attitude they say is dismissive and uncooperative. At least one county sheriff and six county commissioners traveled to Washington, D.C., in 2014 to express their frustration and ask for his removal.

 

Love led a controversial artifacts trafficking raid in the Blanding area in 2009 and was involved in the armed standoff on the Utah-Nevada border with the Cliven Bundy family over unpaid grazing fees.

Aside from the Burning Man incidents, the agent investigated by the Office of Inspector General was found to have manipulated the hiring process so his friend got a job at the agency, even though the man was not as qualified as other applicants and received an unfavorable recommendation by another employer, the report states.

 

The investigative report was forwarded to the Interior Department’s assistant secretary over lands and minerals for any action deemed appropriate.

 

The report also noted several instances of threatened retaliation by Love — who has since been removed from his post — to the point where one colleague said she began locking the door to her office.

 

The agent also is accused of bragging that he “owned” the national director of BLM’s Office of Law Enforcement and Security and that nothing would happen to him.

 

According to the report, Love told the woman she better do damage control after the investigation began in 2015. Once he was removed from his position, she said he told her: “You know, if you don’t side with me, grenades are going to go off and you’ll get hit.”

 

 

Add theft to the long list of ethical violations!  Dan Love must be prosecuted and pay restitution for the damage he's done and theft committed in the governments name!  Love was reported to have given away pricey rocks as gifts to his favorites who did favors to the tune of $160,000.00 - $520,000.00. The OIG MUST release the redacted portions of documents included in their report.  Harry Reid is STILL pulling the strings!

UPDATE ~

House Committee On Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) submitted by letter a request for BLM Spokeswoman Megan Crandall to provide the Committee an UN-Redacted copy of the OIG-Office of Inspector General Report on Bureau Of Land Management Special Agent Daniel P. Love entitled "Investigative Report Of Misconduct By A Senior BLM Law Enforcement Manager".  The letter was dated August 23, 2016.  Krandall was given 24 hours to produce the report.  Bishop also stated "the previous administration turned a blind eye to corruption and promoted a culture of mismanagement at the Department of the Interior".

Dan Love Fired!

LINDSAY WHITEHURST, Associated Press Writes...
 

A federal agent who had been scrutinized for his handling of rare evidence as well as behavior at the counterculture Burning Man festival is no longer an employee of the Bureau of Land Management, authorities said Friday.

Daniel Love, who played a command role in federal agents’ 2014 standoff with Nevada rancher and states’ rights figure Cliven Bundy, no longer works for the agency, spokeswoman Megan Crandall told the Associated Press.

"Apparently, we don't pay Megan Crandall enough to answer the public's questions", She did not answer questions about the timing or circumstances of his departure, citing federal privacy laws.

A lawyer for Love, Lisa Kleine, did not immediately return messages seeking comment. There was no answer at a publicly listed phone number for him.

Love still worked for the agency on Aug. 24, 2017 when a federal investigative report was released saying he handed out valuable stones known as moqui marbles to colleagues and a contractor “like candy,” as one witness told investigators.

The rocks are unique geological formations of iron oxide that form in sedimentary rock and the agency was holding them as evidence in an investigation into whether they were illegally collected from an unnamed national park, according to a U.S. Department of Interior report.

It also found Love told an employee to delete some emails that contained bureau information requested by then-U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz in 2016.

The Bundy cattle roundup pitted weapon-toting Bundy supporters against heavily armed BLM agents who, in the end, gave up efforts to collect Bundy cattle for nonpayment of grazing fees.

Love also led agents in a 2009 southern Utah artifact-looting investigation that marked an early skirmish in the Western U.S. conflict over control of public lands.

He was sued over the artifacts raid by family of a doctor, James Redd, who killed himself after he was arrested. That case was later dismissed.

September 25, 2017

Department Of The Interior David L. Bernhardt issued a memo addressing misconduct in its agencies including the Bureau Of Land Management and addressed the dismissal of Agent Daniel P. Love.  Bernhardt is quoted as saying “the Department must be free from any retaliation or reprisal for reports of misconduct”.
