The absolute horribleness of porkulus rolls on...
The 99th congressional district of North Dakota is rolling in about $2 million worth of porkulus funding right now.
Check out this cool interactive map that will show you where nearly $6.4 billion was used to "create or save" just under 30,000 jobs ($225,000/job) in places that don't even exist. Awesome.
We bang on them quite a bit but we'll give credit where credit is due: no fewer than 12 news organizations have dug a little bit deeper to expose the horrendously faulty and corrupt jobs accounting of porkulus. (Then again porkulus is not the only government-operated entity that does not have to comply with the usual accounting standards)
Of somewhat local note:
"Los Angeles-based Syska Hennessy Group Construction reported 93 jobs stemming from an Army contract...The number is closer to two jobs because the construction work has not started yet..." as reported by... the Atlanta Journal-Constitution?
