Stimulus checks sent to 1700 inmates

The federal government mistakenly sent out stimulus checks to 1,700 prison inmates, the Social Security Administration said Tuesday -- a $425,000 error.

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor said in a written statement:

It is unacceptable for convicts to be getting stimulus funds. It speaks to the lack of oversight and accountability to have such nonsense coming out of Washington. Where is the accountability?

This is another embarrassment on Obama’s watch that is not being fully reported by the main stream media.
