Your Tax Dollars at Work
Six million dollars in stimulus funds has been awarded to a company by the name of Bovis Lend Lease LMB, an international construction management company. Why they've been given a cent is beyond me. The company has been under criminal investigation not once, but twice, in the past two years. Their track record is so dubious that they are not allowed to bid on or perform any work on New York City schools.
The company's errors have been so major that two firefighters died in 2007 as a result. The company narrowly escaped manslaughter charges.
The FBI has been involved in investigations centering around overbilling, bribery of union officials, and other illegalities. One of the projects involved in these investigations includes the September 11 memorial.
Despite these and other offenses, the federal government apparently saw fit to reward Bovis Lend Lease with stimulus dollars. Go figure.
