72,000 dead people get stimulus money
WASHINGTON -- More than 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each went to people who were either dead or in prison, a government investigator says in a new report. But about $18 million went to nearly 72,000 people who were dead, according to the report by the Social Security Administration's inspector general. The report estimates that a little more than half of those payments were returned. An additional $4.3 million went to more than 17,000 prison inmates, the report said.

I just saw this one. I would say it was unbelievable but when it comes to the federal govt's ability to waste money, it doesn't really surprise me.
