Today, James O’Keefe and Shaughn Adeleye over at Big Government rolled out Round 2 of a series of investigative pieces documenting alleged fraud at the U.S. Census. Yesterday, James O’Keefe released some undercover video from his investigation of the Census in New Jersey from April 27, 2010. O’Keefe provided video evidence of “four Census supervisors encouraging enumerators to falsify information on their time sheets.” Adeleye’s video report today is from Lafayette, Louisiana and was recorded from May 3rd to May 8th. Adeleye reported that “with the aid of a hidden camera, I witnessed and captured evidence of wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars–one systemic failure after another of this a Constitutionally mandated entity.” It is my understanding that there may be more video journalism documenting alleged Census fraud in the next day or two. Stay tuned.
A- for O’Keefe and Adeleye’s piece of investigative journalism. These two video’s give us a glimpse into how our tax dollars are being spent by the federal government in Louisiana and New Jersey. These two investigative journalist get an A+ for video journalism, yet marked down for feeding each other olives at 6:09 into the video. Great job by a Citizen Journalist – Shaughn Adeleye.
