I see dead people… receiving stimulus checks

I’m a tad late to this story but thought that maybe some of you had missed it:

A government investigator says 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each went to people who were either dead or in prison.

The Social Security Administration’s inspector general said in a report Thursday that $18 million went to 72,000 people who were dead. The report estimates that a little more than half the payments were returned.

The report said $4.3 million went to a little more than 17,000 prison inmates.

The payments were part of the government’s massive economic recovery package enacted in February 2009.

Can you say quid pro quo?

That Damned 19th Amendment...
