Cash for Convicts?

The Boston Herald continues to lead the story on their investigation of federal stimulus money going to convicts.
One day after the Herald reported some surprised Bay State inmates - including murderers and rapists - were cashing in $250 stimulus checks, federal officials revealed the same behind-bars bonus was mailed to nearly 4,000 cons nationwide.

A federal watchdog is now probing how the cons were cut the checks. The same cash also may have been sent to fugitive felons, people kicked out of the country and even individuals now deceased.

Sending tax dollars to convicted criminals? At least Congress has finally gotten around to reforming its pension system.
