Obama’s Administration Looses $11 Million Tax Payer Dollars!

$11 million stimulus grant meant to provide low-income Detroit residents with clothing for job interviews reportedly aided just two people — far short of the 400 job-seekers the money was meant to help.

The findings were part of a new audit on the city’s Department of Human Services, according to The Detroit News.

The 2009 grant in question was used to start a service center — which included among other features a call center for families in need and a clothing boutique. However, the audit reportedly found the department did not safeguard the funding for that boutique, which was run by a contractor. According to the report, the contractor advanced nearly $150,000 to a city clothing store without involving the city government.

While the department was supposed to help 400 job-seekers with clothing between the fall of 2010 and 2011, the boutique instead came up with two documented cases where clients received clothing.
