Citing a Government Accountability Office report, Tancredo said potentially more than $1 billion in taxpayer money has been "squandered through waste, fraud and abuse."

"This whole fiasco has been a perfect storm of corruption and incompetence at all levels" Tancredo said. "It's time the taxpayer gravy train left the New Orleans station." Tancredo said he had earlier warned that Louisiana officials could not be trusted with federal money. "State and local

advantage of taxpayers since before Day One," he said. "Throwing more
money at this debacle will do nothing but perpetuate more of the same."
