Just what I have been saying. LA clean; FEDS corrupt.

"No one expected it to be that way, but it seems obvious that the feds have outdone Louisiana in improper or ineffective spending of hurricane recovery funds. Claims that Washington should handle all the funds because of Louisiana’s history of corruption have ceased.

The change in rhetoric stems from things like a report by the Government Accountability Office yesterday that U.S. Department of Homeland Security workers misused government credit cards in the wake of last year’s hurricanes to purchase items ranging from a 63-inch plasma television to a beer-brewing kit. Weak internal accounting controls exposed Homeland Security to the fraud and abuse, the GAO found."
