DC Health Inspectors Found Rats at the Connecticut Avenue IRS Office

Darrell Issa and the Fox News crew are going to have an absolute field day with this:

Inspectors ordered the Internal Revenue Service snack bar temporally [sic] closed Wednesday for pests and no hot water violations according to District of Columbia health inspection records.

The snack bar is located in the agency's headquarters building at 1111 Connecticut Ave. NW.

Health inspectors cited the IRS snack bar for eight violations, including "several rodent droppings observed on floor and equipment" and hot water recorded at 88 degrees instead of the required District minimum of 110 degrees.

Oh come on! That entire city is crawling with pests and vermin, what's the big deal?
