    Another reason our government is STOOPID

    WASHINGTON -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency was hoodwinked to pay for season football tickets, a tropical vacation and a sex change operation, an audit of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita aid found.

    Houston divorce lawyer Mark Lipkin says he can't recall anyone paying for his services with a FEMA debit card, but congressional investigators say one of his clients did just that.

    That $1,000 payment was just one example cited in an audit that concluded that up to $1.4 billion -- perhaps as much as 16 percent of the billions of dollars in assistance expended after those two hurricanes in 2005 -- was spent for bogus reasons.

    Prison inmates, a supposed victim who used a New Orleans cemetery for a home address and a person who spent 70 days at a Hawaiian hotel all were able to get taxpayer help, according to evidence that gives a new black eye to the nation's disaster relief agency.

    One Question??????

    If the Government would have with held payments to people until they had proven that they lived in New Orleans or the hurricane damaged areas how bad of a beating in the media would they have taken? And how long before a story that they were not getting the money to the people that needed it because they were African American?

    Damned if you do, and damned if you don't!

    Example:

    The Red Cross was outside of New Orleans and ready to deliver add to the Superdome, the Governor of Louisiana & the Mayor of New Orleans wouldn't let them because they did not want to attract more people to the Superdome.

    So the Red Cross and Fema got torn apart in the media when they were ready to bring aid, and were told not to. The same time the Governor and the Mayor are both on TV yelling for aid, and the hilarious part is the Mayor of New Orleans was just reelected.

    How about lets put the blame squarely were it belongs on the scum that used this disaster to take advantage of the American tax payer's generosity and their willingness to help the people that were affected by this disaster. Find these people throw their a$$es in jail, seize their possession's and any financial accounts they have, take back what they stole form the tax payers and what the cost of their trial and incarceration will be!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
