California's stimulus $$$ watchdog checks out job creation numbers and more

How many jobs - really? In her position as first-in-the-nation Recovery Act Inspector General, Laura Chick is watching for waste, fraud and abuse in the spending of the estimated $50 billion in federal stimulus funds that California will receive through fiscal year 2010. Among the issues she is investigating is a job creation claim by California State University officials… she says the numbers should not have been reported because "they don't make sense."
