More than 3,000 Obama administration-approved Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) retailers used Social Security numbers of dead people when reporting SNAP redemptions to the federal government, according to a recent report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).

The report from GAI, where Breitbart News Senior-Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as president, went through a January 2017 audit from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

The audit examined SNAP retailers for 21 months between October 2013 to June 2015–the period during the Obama administration right after food stamp enrollment reached its highest recorded level since the welfare program’s inception.

The OIG’s audit went through more than 1.5 billion SNAP transaction–or $23 billion in SNAP redemptions from authorized retailers–to look for potential fraudulent transactions.

The audit found that Obama administration SNAP officials approved 3,394 SNAP retailers that used Social Security numbers of the deceased when reporting their SNAP transactions

Yawn, what else is new.
