Shocking News

The government doled out as much as $1.4 billion in bogus assistance to victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, getting hoodwinked to pay for season football tickets, a tropical vacation and even a divorce lawyer, congressional investigators have found.

The GAO concluded that as much as 16 percent of the billions of dollars in FEMA help to individuals after the two hurricanes was unwarranted.

I’m shocked, simply shocked that people would mismanage funds that they have no plausible reason to care about.

Asking an organization that is several times removed from the impact of a disaster to efficiently handle aid.
