James O'Keefe strikes again

Mr. O'Keefe, the journalist who exposed ACORN's support for underage prostitution rings, has done it again. This time he went undercover at the Census Bureau in New Jersey, and immediately discovered massive corruption.

"With a hidden camera, I caught four Census supervisors encouraging enumerators to falsify information on their time sheets. Over the course of two days of training, I was paid for four hours of work I never did. I was told to take a 70 minute lunch break, was given an hour of travel time to drive 10 minutes, and was told to leave work at 3:30pm. I resigned prior to doing any data collection but confronted Census supervisors who assured me, 'no one is going to be auditing that that level,' and 'nobody is going to be questioning it except for you.'"

This is the kind of performance one would expect from our overpaid Federal bureaucracy (see below.) What's perhaps more interesting is that the independent Mr. O'Keefe is able to document one example of corruption after another while the mandarins of the MSM apparently can't uncover government fraud right under their noses.

Of course, the MSM assiduously avoids looking under government rocks precisely because it might find something, which would undermine its leftist, pro-government narrative.
