Get Real! Report says DOJ employees pushed to get their kids jobs

A new report from the inspector general says that eight officials at the Department of Justice violated nepotism rules and tried to get their children and other relatives jobs.

In at least one case, the inspector general found that two senior officials colluded with each other to hire each other's kids at the same time.

This is the third report in the past eight years that has found that officials broke similar ethics rules and a spokesman says that the attorney general has made it clear that it won't be tolerated.

Christine Romans and the Starting Point team discuss the report on Starting Point this morning.
