Federal Stimulus Checks Were Sent To 4000 Convicts

From the "Our Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves" file:

While our headline might be dancing on the fine line of truth, the article that follows from the Boston Herald reveals that 1700 or so of the check receiving convicts should not be $250.00 "richer". The other 2200 or so were "legally entitled" to the checks, because they were on SSI before they went to jail.

Well, drop us in a vat of government checks and call us stimulated.

Here's the story:

One day after the Herald reported some surprised Bay State inmates - including murderers and rapists - were cashing in $250 stimulus checks, federal officials revealed the same behind-bars bonus was mailed to nearly 4,000 cons nationwide.

A federal watchdog is now probing how the cons were cut the checks. The same cash also may have been sent to fugitive felons, people kicked out of the country and even individuals now deceased.

It’s all part of the massive American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 - and what is becoming an accounting nightmare for red-faced feds.
