Ben Carson Calls for ‘Covert Division’ to Monitor and Report on Gov’t Workers

Wednesday in Iowa, former Johns Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a Republican presidential candidate, said he was “thinking seriously” about creating a program with a “covert division” of monitors to spy on government workers in hopes of improving  government efficiency.

Carson said, “The other thing that I’m thinking very seriously about doing is adding a covert division of people who look like the people in this room, who monitor what government people do. And we make it possible to fire government people!”

Carson added, “I think just knowing that person that just came through that door might be one of those people would have a profound effect on the efficiency of government.”
