Government employees benefiting from a possible government shutdown

Who said working for the government meant great personal sacrifice to ensure the public good? Certainly not for these lucky--or not--government employees.

More than a dozen Hill staffers got Botox injections this week after D.C.-area plastic surgeon Dr. Navin Singh offered the free treatment last Friday to the first 50 government employees who make an appointment as part of a "government shutdown" special. Singh kept the offer open even though Republicans and Democrats reached an agreement in the 11th hour to keep the government running.

A shot of the stuff, which temporarily eliminates wrinkles, is usually $400. Apparently this falls within government guidelines for accepting free gifts. Or something.
