Breitbart is (still) here: Citizen journalists observe ‘Blog about Pigford Day’

It might have taken years and a front-page story in the New York Times to vindicate the late Andrew Breitbart, but it’s only fitting that the story of the Pigford scandal should return to the world of the blogosphere. Today was “Blog about Pigford Day,” and citizen reporters turned their attention to the “runaway train” of government waste fueled in part by bogus charges of racial discrimination.

Why May 1? As Breitbart.com explained, “May 1st is a crucial date because corrupt farmers’ settlements for women and Hispanic farmers are STILL open — the claims form is at FarmerClaims.gov — but the deadline for these schemes is May 1st.” The New York Times reports that the program could eventually cost up to $4.4 billion. Want to know more about where your tax dollars are going in the name of racial justice? Take your pick.

It might be “blog” about Pigford day, but don’t let that stop you, mainstream media … jump on in!

    Congress should find out exactly how much Treasury money Eric Holder handed out all by his lonesome the past 5 years.

      But they won’t. They can’t get answers to Fast & Furious, Bengahzi and Boston. God knows what else, Republicans keep caving. Except for Crua/Rand/Lee and Trey on Behgahzi… Got get em’ fellas!! We got your back.

    I saw this one older black man saying it was a joke. All they had to do was say they had a garden, and they got the money averaging $50,000.00 each. He was actually one who did have a farm and he was angry about fraud in the system. Imagine that?

          Couldn’t stop yourself from posting that first remark, could you? That’s just terrible, but tomorrow is a new day.

          Sorry, we don’t keep statues of conservative leaders.

          My hope is that liberals don’t either, but by the way they worship them, it does leave us wondering sometimes.

      We don’t, sorry.

    Breitbart is still here, alright — just on the wrong side of the dirt. 😛
