    Wanna bet these inspector generals get fired or hushed up just like the inspector general that was going to expose Michelle Obama's connections with....oh crap I forget the organization now. Rats. (Edit...Americorp...that was it)

    Is anyone really surprised there is fraud? I am more surprised that they are surprised.

    I am not an obama supporter, just saying that obama has promised to crack-down on any such behavior prior to this report:
