Even More Stimulus Lies

So how many lies and mistakes does it take to go from a cascade of incompetent errors to fraud?  From ABC News:

Here’s a stimulus success story: In Arizona’s 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that’s what the Web site set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

There’s one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts.

ABC goes on to note that the government web site that keeps track of the stimulus’ impact lists “hundreds of millions spent and hundreds of jobs created in congressional districts that don’t exist”.

Officials blame it on errors.  By the way, taxpayers spent $18 million to update the error-prone site.  $18 million!!
