Stimulus Money Went To Fake Zip Codes

By Wyatt Earp | January 4, 2010


The mafia could learn a lot from the current crop of politicians serving in Washington. If they could launder and transfer money like the folks in Congress do, they would never, ever get caught. Perhaps they should set up a meeting with the Obama administration, since they seem to be masters of shell companies.

Gateway Pundit has the insanity:

Not only did the Obama Administration spend stimulus funds in nonexistent districts but recently it was discovered that stimulus cash went to nonexistent zip code areas, too. New Mexico Watchdog Org reported:

First it was phantom Congressional districts. Now it is phantom zip codes. Last month, we reported on federal stimulus money credited with creating jobs in nonexistent New Mexico Congressional districts. Further examination of the most recent report on the recipients and uses of New Mexico’s share of the $787 billion stimulus shows jobs created and money going to zip codes that do not exist.

That’s twice now. When is someone going to call the Obama administration on the carpet for this? I won’t hold my breath.

The website launched by the Obama Administration to track the destinations of billions of dollars of stimulus funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act showed billions going to nonexistent Congressional districts. The website,, reported $26.5 million going to ten New Mexico Congressional districts that do not exist. Those millions were credited with creating 61.5 jobs. Spadework by our Watchdog counterparts in other states showed a total of $6.4 billion reported as being allocated to 440 nonexistent, or “phantom,” Congressional districts.

Moreover, funds reported as being spent in New Mexico were given zip codes corresponding to areas in Washington and Oregon.

Friggin’ unbelievable. And remember kids, these are the people that want to control your health care.

    More important is where did that money actually go? Into some of the crooked politicians’ pockets?

    Well, if we’re lucky, the next administration will put some people up on charges. If we’re really lucky, the next set of elections will do it. If we’re really unlucky, the Prez will give presidential pardons to all involved before the end of his term, and retire from office a few days before the end of his term and have Joe Biden give him a pardon too. Kind of a Nixon thing.

    Seriously, we need to just vote the bums out. Obama and his administration are as crooked as they come but they didn’t do all this damage by themselves…the senate and house were huge contributors to this hot mess. The main stream media has covered for Obama since he started running so they aren’t going to switch it up at this point. SNL doing it’s satire and a few oneliners on late night occasionally throw a zinger at Obama are the only signs that the Hollywood crowd knows he’s a fake. Nope, don’t think too many are going to be looking at where the money went for fear of opening a real Pandora’s box.

    Ron – Oh no, that couldn’t possibly happen! /snark.

    PhillipC – I can’t wait to hear Obama’s pardon list. Ayers should be at the front of the line.

    MeToo – I’ve been saying for months now – vote every incumbent out of office.
