Film at 11

The FBI has uncovered fraud by public officials in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and has created a task force to investigate corruption as federal money pours into the Gulf Coast region, Mississippi’s top agent said Monday.
“We are seeing public officials facilitating some of the fraud,” John G. Raucci, agent in charge in Mississippi, said in an interview with The Associated Press. “It’s not widespread, I will say that, but we have seen it and we have begun addressing it.”
Raucci would not give details.

You knew it was coming ~ KNEW it had to be happening ~ but it’s still such a shame. If this breaks big, the sympathy meter might well be pegged in a lot of hearts and minds.

    Wow, next they’ll be telling us the Pope is Catholic, and that bears shit in the woods.

    I guess they mised all the fraud before Katrina, eh?

  3. Well, before Katrina it was ‘Business as Usual’ and part of the charm of the place. After Katrina, I think people thought they’d suspend ‘BAU’ knowing the world was watching.

    Some people get so greedy that they get stupid. Or are they greedy because they are stupid? No matter –the conditions tend to go hand in hand.
