Almost every single part of Congress’s COVID-19 spending binge has been plagued by waste, fraud, and abuse at levels previously unthinkable. The latest example of this runaway waste is the revelation that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent 1 million stimulus checks to current inmates—including some murderers!
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon’s Joseph Simonson, “More than 1.1 million incarcerated individuals received COVID-19 stimulus checks, totaling over $1 billion dollars, according to internal data provided by the IRS. Roughly 163,000 of those recipients are individuals serving life sentences without the possibility of parole… life sentences are most commonly given to individuals convicted of homicide and rape.”
Yes, seriously. Congress sent more than a billion of your tax dollars in stimmy checks to literal inmates including convicted rapists and murderers.
