'Breathtaking' Waste and Fraud -- but not necessarily in Louisiana.

'Breathtaking' Waste and Fraud in Hurricane Aid - New York Times:
"Among the many superlatives associated with Hurricane Katrina can now be added this one: it produced one of the most extraordinary displays of scams, schemes and stupefying bureaucratic bungles in modern history, costing taxpayers up to $2 billion."
Read this article. It mentions two cases of Louisiana corruption, but many more by people from all around the country. And the most expensive losses are attributable to FEMA waste and abuse.
