49 Accused of Defrauding Hurricane Fund
FRESNO, Calif. - Forty-nine people have been indicted in a scheme that bilked thousands of dollars from a Red Cross fund designated for Hurricane Katrina victims, federal authorities said.Oh PLEEEEZE. Thanks to our friends on the left, who deftly made Katrina into racist issue, and their associates in the media, there's no doubt that fake clames will be in the hundreds of millions of dollars and corruption up the whazoo. Good grief, who does the AP think their kidding?
The fake claims drained at least $200,000 from the fund, with an average payout of about $1,000, Red Cross spokeswoman Devorah Goldburg said. The total could rise as the investigation continues.
