ACORN antagonist and undercover filmmaker/pimp James O'Keefe has regrouped after the attempted investigation of Sen. Mary Landreiu's district office "telephone problems" and has aimed his sights on a new target: the U.S. Census.
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 [at] that level,” and “nobody is going to be questioning it except for you.”
For all it's worth, we should thank James & Hannah Giles: because of their investigation, we at least know ACORN is no longer working on the Census. Still, the Obama White House has taken control of the Census and should be held responsible for this atrocious behavior.
When I addressed what seemed to be a discrepancy on my form, I was told to not worry about it: “As long as you don’t have any major felonies or your fingerprints don’t come back as jack the ripper, you’ll be fine.” ... I had a payroll supervisor tell me not to worry about having been paid for hours I did not work: “I think you are just making a big deal out of it… I would just throw it away.”
As Shaughn points out, when everyone else is asked to tighten their belts, Obama's Census gets to "lie, cheat and steal as much as it can get away with. ... No one is accountable, no one takes any responsibility and the media yawns while as much as a billion dollars is wasted. This is what's wrong with America."
