Citizen journalists, rejoice.
For three years, I’ve been investigating fraud in the Pigford black farmers settlement. In my long work on the story with Andrew Breitbart and others, I’ve exposed how easy it was to collect a $50,000 check if you filled out the paperwork right. But there were things we never knew the specifics on.
But just how greedy were people?
How many claims were so outrageous that they screamed for some kind of fraud investigation?
The public had no way of knowing and they gave billions of tax dollars to Pigford Claimants. We knew the outlines. We knew the big picture. We didn’t have the fine, minute details.
