Stimulus dollars sent to bogus zip codes: ‘Much ado about nothing?’

The Carolinajournal.com, whose publisher is Mint Hill Times columnist John Hood, reports that $2.5 million in federal stimulus dollars were allocated to zip codes which do not exist. Deputy Press Secretary for the Recovery Act Jim Gilio said this was a human error, and that recipients simply wrote down the wrong zip code and all the dollars are accounted for. Almost. The carolinajournal.com notes that even when taking into account the human error, a large chunk of the $2.5 million is still missing.

  1. IMHO – the bigger story surrounding the stimulus funds, is the lack of accountability and transparency from the new administration.

    The administration was elected on “Change”… however, the only change anyone has seen, is a change of the promises and committments that were made to get elected!

    One day, “We the People” will actually mean something again.
