Fake Stimulus Jobs Map

Earlier we linked to the official government map displaying jobs created or saved by the various American economic stimulus bills. Since then there have been a series of news stories alleging the official numbers include bogus jobs that were neither created nor saved. The White House has even retracted about 60,000 claims from their statistics. Now the Examiner newspaper has made their own map claiming to mark and describe some of the "75,343 bogus jobs." There is even a way one can report fake stimulus job claims.

Meanwhile the official Recovery.org map has not been updated to remove the fake created or saved job claims.
