Local Porkulus Fabulousness

The U-T watchdog reports today on a Chula Vista charity that has difficulties with accounting for how stimulus cash was spent. The State Inspector General found the following about the Metropolitan Area Advisory Committee (MAAC).

The report showed that the Chula Vista nonprofit altered records, such as dates on applications, and may have provided benefits to people who were not eligible.
. . .
Her audit found that MAAC commingled stimulus funds with other agency revenue, failed to account for $888 in travel costs, under-calculated the number of jobs created and performed oversight work after delivering services to clients instead of in advance.
The MAAC, of course, denies any wrong doing. And why do we care, it's only a million?
