Exposing fraud in the US Census
O'Keefe scores again
The blogger who pulled the rug out from under ACORN, James O'Keefe, is at it again.
After purchasing another camera (since a judge in Louisiana took his last one over that case involving Senator Landreu), he set out to get a job with the US Census...then found out how casual they are with our taxdollars.
On April 27, 2010, I got a job with the United States Census Bureau in New Jersey. With a hidden camera, I caught four Census supervisors encouraging enumerators to falsify information on their time sheets. Over the course of two days of training, I was paid for four hours of work I never did. I was told to take a 70 minute lunch break, was given an hour of travel time to drive 10 minutes, and was told to leave work at 3:30pm. I resigned prior to doing any data collection but confronted Census supervisors who assured me, “no one is going to be auditing that that level,” and “nobody is going to be questioning it except for you.” Another Census supervisor only said he’d adjust my pay after I gave him a letter recanting my hours. ...
In other words, nobody here is going to care if you defraud the government...hey, that's what we're ALL here for!

This is one of the truly great things about the Internet (that liberals would love to stiffle)... Anyone with a camera and a web connection can potentially have the same exposure as "real" journalists.
