Porkopolis: “The second wave of Katrina’s disaster–Waste, Fraud and Corruption”

Filed under: Consumer Outrage,Economy,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 12:55 pm

S.O.B. Alliance Member Porkopolis has been monitoring Katrina’s sad fiscal saga since the hurricane hit. His latest post chronicles the waste, fraud, and corruption elements of the unfolding taxpayer disaster. Among the tart tidbits: There are 1,000 fraud cases now under active investigation, representing the largest number of such probes stemming from a natural disaster in U.S. history.

Porkopolis has also done a service by findng the The Project on Government Oversight, which has dedicated a portion of its web site to monitoring the post-Katrina mess. Bookmark it; it will unfortunately be worth periodic visits.

It’s also sad, but typical, that only The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) appears to be monitoring this ongoing story so far.
