Stimuls Fraud in Oklahoma?
By Associated Press
Oklahoma City, OK – Stimulus dollars listed in non-existent districts
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The federal government's Web site shows millions of dollars in federal stimulus money going to congressional districts in Oklahoma that don't exist.
The errors are being blamed on data entry problems.
They include $11.6 million to the state's 25th Congressional District and $10 million to the 51st District. Oklahoma has only five congressional districts.
Nearly $2.8 billion in stimulus funds have been awarded to Oklahoma so far.
