The Pigford scandal and the exposing of billions of dollars of misappropriated (technically fraudulent) payments were made to individuals claiming to be farmers. The payments were made to “farmers” even if they had “attempted to farm”. So wildly fraudulent this is one wonders why there even needs to be a fight over stopping this; considering the evidence revealed in the investigation.
Instead of this being immediately addressed and shutdown politicians are dragging their feet. And this is why I am asking for 2 minutes of your time so you can make a difference. You can familiarize yourself with the investigation, which is now 6 months old, here at Big Government.
YOU CAN STOP THIS
Lee Stranahan, the lead investigator on Pigford, has conducted an interview today with Rep. King on the topic and also provides the link to the petition that I am requesting you, my readers, to sign. Stopping fraud in government seems like a fait accompli to most of us; especially those who follow government closely. However, a real chance to help make a difference has now appeared courtesy of Stranahan’s diligence in this investigation and Breitbart’s willingness to host this developing story exposing ongoing corruption.
You in my audience, have been amazing when it comes to communication and taking action. With the many blogs that I have run in the past this is the only one with a loyal following that developed into great personal relationships. While we have discussed and investigated many issues here this is one that can produce demonstrable results in a relatively short time. And since all of you have been willing to sign up for the longer duration fights I think you will find this cause relieving in the sense that it is happening now, and you can make a difference now. Lets make chops and bacon out of Pigford.
