InsiderOnline Blog: December 2004

Cool Blog

Just found this neat blog at Citizens Against Government Waste, publishers of one of my all-time favorites, the Congressional Pig Book.

As you would expect, the blog chronicles instances of government waste. Looks like it's updating every couple of days. Maybe it'll be more often once the new Congress gets started. Here's a good one from NY, NY:

The New York City Board of Elections, paid close to $2 million over the last four years for chauffeurs to drive workers home after hours, and the board recently signed contracts valued at about $6 million with two transportation companies to provide the service for another four years. The board said it cannot afford to upgrade its antiquated voting system, becuase the city has failed to provide $1 million it requested earlier in the year for improvements to its Web site and telephone system.
