Mississippi, the poorest state in the nation, with nearly 20% of the residents living in poverty, takes federal welfare assistance and directs it to ... no-bid, unmonitored non-profits with connections to the state DHS director. And not surprisingly, the funds were not exactly spent wisely, with large sums directed to themselves and to other "poor" folks such as $1 million paid to Brett Favre and nearly $4 million to a WWF wrestler for motivational speeches - which would have been wildly inappropriate misuse of funds, but even worse, those speeches apparently never even occurred.
Meanwhile, a grand total of less than $2 million was actually disbursed to needy families according to welfare guidelines (3% of funds). And after this mess, they had to spend $2.1 million just for an audit to partially figure out where all the money was stolen off to.
