A State Department investigation has reportedly found that Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin was overpaid in the neighborhood of $10,000 when she worked at State during Hillary’s tenure as secretary:

As with most things that involve the Clintons, the excuse involves a tangled explanation:

State Department investigators concluded this year that Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s closest aides, was overpaid by nearly $10,000 because of violations of rules governing vacation and sick leave during her tenure as an official in the department.

The finding — which Abedin has formally contested — emerged publicly Friday after Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) sent letters to Secretary of State John F. Kerry and others seeking more information about an investigation into possible “criminal” conduct by Abedin concerning her pay.

Funny that these kinds of “honest mistakes” and “oversights” never seem to lead to a Clinton or their pals being underpaid.
