Investigation of Dan Love

Dan Love, you may have forgotten, was the BLM agent who was "Utah's former Special Agent in Charge...who oversaw law enforcement at Burning Man for several years." He was the man behind the request for a million dollars worth of luxury for the BLM agents at Burning Man in 2015. Well, he had that position until he was removed from that position for that request...among other things. He was the Choco-taco man.

And those other things are coming out now, according to this article in the Reno Gazette-Journal. The official report can be found here. The BLM investigation revealed many of Love's abuses of the system, including buying three regular priced tickets after the point where all of those were supposed to have been sold out. He also brought family into the event and had on-duty BLM agents transport them around the playa in official vehicles. Love also created and placed a memorial at the Temple while on duty.

Love had been the BLM agent in charge at the 2014 Bundy standoff. After that he was transferred to a position in Utah where he seems to have managed to piss off just about everybody in Utah. And then he came to Burning Man and embarrassed the BLM there, after which he was transferred away, in time to get him out of there before the 2015 Burn.
