Further evidence of fraud by Andrew Breitbart in the Pigford reparations scandal should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the story. Now Lee Stranahan, whom Breitbart brought in from the Huffington Post to double check his facts, is on board with an upcoming documentary that will expose organizational wrongdoing in the case.
In other words, not only did thousands of un-entitled claimants file for damages, but they may have been encouraged and told how to successfully file those fraudulent claims by the organizations that set up the scam.
Stranahan and Breitbart presented a video at a CPAC presser yesterday that will eventually become part of a larger documentary; it includes undercover audio that indicates a conspiracy to commit fraud by the head of at least one Democrat-supported nonprofit.
Rep. Michele Bachmann introduced Breitbart who in turn brought on Stranahan and GOP Rep. Steve King from Iowa. King, who has been investigating Pigford II since 2008, has been smeared as a racist by the left for describing the scheme as a Trojan horse for slavery reparations.
Does any of this sound familiar?
A disturbing pattern is emerging here that indicates far more than the multibillion-dollar Pigford theft of taxpayer dollars. Put it together with the massive 2009 ACORN scandal and recent revelations of corruption within Planned Parenthood, and we begin to see a much-repeated, criminal modus operandi within Democrat-supported nonprofits.
Stranahan—who is not a conservative—has laid out a scathing indictment against Pigford II; he has not only exposed widespread corruption on the part of lawmakers and liberal nonprofits, but also suggests further intentional disregard by the national media, after similar abuses were expose in the ACORN and Planned Parenthood scandals.
More shockingly, it appears that President Obama himself may have been knowingly involved in this fraud from the very beginning, as a United States senator. Lots of luck making it stick but it certainly appears that way.
With the revelation this week by former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel that he supports slavery reparations, and President Obama’s outright prevarication to Bill O’Reilly that he is not for wealth redistribution, it is clear that this administration will stop at nothing to promote its socialist agenda.
In 1972, a couple of cub reporters at the Washington Post brought down an American presidency for a little two-bit burglary at the Watergate; you’d think a multibillion-dollar grift by this president would at least attract a sidebar.
