It was really a no win situation for FEMA. Had they delayed payments to verify all the necessary information, folks would have been screaming about it right then.

As a matter of fact folks were screaming about it right then. Along with all the other FEMA bashing they could get in.

Now that these criminals have been identified, lets see them prosecuted.

Sometimes you have to understand the circumstances. The sex change was warranted.

Well

As Kenneth Lay (Kenny Boy) will tell you, only the poor and the gender confused steal.

Does anyone else find it odd that the drive-by media headline calls this "FEMA Fraud," not a bunch of low-lifes perpatrating a fraud on FEMA...

This problem should NEVER have gotten this far. The FEMA debit cards SHOULD HAVE BEEN driven off of recipients social security number [or ghost stand in] and that number should have flagged any non approved sale to be stopped at the Point of Sale [POS] register if the database had been set up correctly. Also, any double payments by FEMA would have the same safeguards with the SSN or ghost so there really is no excuse for this unless FEMA had God's poorest database design or they had no data redundancy auditing. Duplicate payment and pay rejection based on criteria table is DB 101, ok maybe 202.

The excuse that this was of such a scale that it could not be handled is not accurate. If your DB is not scalable you just break it up into clusters using the SSN or ghost as the key to insure folks can't silo different clusters.

I seem to remember the drive-by administration handing out these $2,000 bribes as a way to shut up all the people screaming about Katrina, you know, like the $400 bribe they paid taxpayers so they wouldn't scream over the screw job they got on the tax breaks for the rich, or the proposed $100 gasoline bribe that was laughed out off the agenda. For a bunch of "conservatives" you sure act like a bunch of friggin commies when the situation might put you all out of office. Handing out $2,000 a pop to dope dealers and crooks was YOUR idea. Oh, but I forgot, you guys never take responsibilty for anything. It must have been Clinton's fault.

The $100 gasoline bribe was a Congressional proposal, and not supported by the administration. For heaven's sake, get your facts straight!
