ATF Glory Hole Agent Still Drawing Pay, Pension, Benefits

The increasingly active news sources at have something to say about ATF agent Russell Vanderwerf, “who was/is the DIO [Director of Industry Operations] of the Houston FD, was arrested in December 2009 in New Orleans while there on official ATF business. He was actually taken into custody at the New Orleans FD office. Just google Russell Vanderwerf ATF-you will see all the details of the story (glory holes, craigslist, and random men in and out of his room at the Residence Inn across from the New Orleans FD office. I do know that he is still an employee of ATF. His is listed on all the DIO emails that go out. My sources in Houston say that he is not allowed in the office or be around employees, but works from home. There are others that officially “act” as the DIO while he draws his GS/15 pay in the comfort of his home. Would anyone outside of management be treated this way? No. They would be fired. End of Story.”

    For many years I’ve been telling ATF to shove it up its a$$. Kudos to Russell for taking my advice.

    He probably knows where bodies/guns are buried (in Mexico).

      Obviously they’re buried south of the border.
