Undercover Video Reveals Census Fraud!

James O’Keefe is at it again and this time has revealed a massive financial fraud within the Census Bureau that is costing you, the taxpayer, over an additional $1,000,000,000.00!

This clip reveals James O’Keefe going undercover as a Census worker and being trained to tweak his pay card and his work hours by up to four additional hours a day.  Census workers are paid $18.25 per hour.  With over 600,000 workers that’s an incredible amount of fraudulent paychecks.

O’Keefe captures on video the training by the crew leader on how to tweak the time cards.  When he points out to the crew leader that the card states “Under penalty of fine and/or imprisonment I certify that the information is true and correct to the best of my knowledge,” the crew leader brushes him off and reassures him that it will be fine.

O’Keefe doesn’t stop there.  He confronts the Census Bureau’s head of payroll and is again assured that nobody performs audits at that level.  He continues on by showing up at the Field Operations Offices and speaks to the head Field Operator who once again tells him that as long as his crew leader signs off on it, than he has no need to worry!

This goes to prove that integrity no longer exist within government at any level.  These people should be fired but the unions will make sure that they are protected at all cost.
