Darrell Issa Sends Letter To Census Demanding Info On Alleged Fake Jobless Data

The House Oversight and Reform Committee is demanding answers from the director of the Census Bureau after a news outlet reported that Census employees may have fabricated data for a jobs report that showed a significant drop in unemployment under President Obama just a month from Election Day 2012.

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., wrote Tuesday to Census Bureau Director John Thompson calling the allegations in the New York Post "shocking." Issa requested information about Julius Buckmon, the employee the Post said fabricated data after being unable to reach the people who had the information he needed.

The jobs report, released in October 2012 just ahead of Election Day, showed that the unemployment rate had dropped under Obama from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent even though the economy had added only 114,000 jobs.

Get over your late arse! You should have seen that flag in 2o12, you dolt! Why are you wasting my money on your paycheck to "investigate" it now? What good will that do?

Get back to your job and look at TODAY'S PROBLEMS/SCAMS!!!
