Over 100 Criminal Probes Related to Stimulus Funding in the Department of Energy Alone

Thankfully, at least one man in the federal government has been awfully busy on behalf of the American taxpayer:
Bear in mind that the Department of Energy only recieved $35 billion of the $787 billion allocated by the stimulus bill. It would be impossible to get a handle on how much criminal activity surrounds the stimulus bill, given that the federal government is not exactly known for aggressively policing fraud. Still, it sounds like the Department of Energy inspector general is doing yeoman's work. If the schemes that he's uncovered are anything to go by, the stimulus has likely produced a staggering amount of crime.
