    Two Census Bureau managers from a Brooklyn field office were fired after their bosses found they faked household surveys to meet deadlines, the Daily News learned.

    Instead of pounding the pavement and knocking on doors, the corner-cutting people-counters mined the phone book and Internet to make up answers to questionnaires, regional director Tony Farthing said.

    The managers - turned in by whistleblower employees - were caught last week. Now, at least 10,000 surveys need to be done or redone, officials said.

    These two should be prosecuted for mail fraud but we all know that Holder will not do that.

    Not to mention election fraud. Those 10,000 fake questionnaires equal 10,000 fake households, with God only knows how many fake people being created for the purpose of congressional redistricting, not to mention all sorts of entitlement frauds that could be pulled off with a lest of phony beneficiaries.

    How much do you want to bet that it will turn out that these two are affiliated with ACORN?

    Did you take part in the poll? 65% of the people who took it are clueless thinking that this is an isolated incident. I am getting really tired of this bullshit.

    Once they get rid of the wistleblowers, this method will make it into the SOP's - at least in heavily Democratic Districts.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    It's sad that honesty isn't in their vocabulary.

    Sure it is. It's a synonym for "sucker."
