72,000 stimulus payments went to dead people
Writer Stephen Ohlemacher
Associated Press Writer – Thu Oct 7

WASHINGTON – A government investigator says 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each went to people who were either dead or in prison.

The Social Security Administration's inspector general said in a report Thursday that $18 million went to 72,000 people who were dead. The report estimates that a little more than half the payments were returned.

The report said $4.3 million went to a little more than 17,000 prison inmates.

The payments were part of the government's massive economic recovery package enacted in February 2009. Under the law, the $250 payments were sent to about 52 million Social Security recipients and federal retirees.

That story was reported by Yahoo, which is clearly a fascist right wing publication, so we should ignore it.

Obama can do no wrong. Everything he has done is working as evidenced by our current improving economic situation.

Reminds me of dead people voting in one of our past elections- I think Rich would prob know for sure.

Was it the 1960 election?

You can be fairly certain that it has probably been every one of our elections.

It happened as recently as 2008. See Minnesota. Norm Coleman versus that really bad comedian whose name escapes me right now.

Al Franken. The guy who got caught drawing pictures on his notepad during the Elena Kagan confirmation rather than listen to her responses to questions.
