Jobs 'Saved or Created' From Stimulus in Congressional Districts That Do Not Exist

I think people are looking at the news that the stimulus 'saved or created' jobs in places that do not exist all wrong. That and the fractional jobs created and the jobs created with no money. It not as if there is any reason to be concerned about fraud and corruption with hundreds of billions of dollars being thrown around. You see, the stimulus was so effective that it has created jobs in the future that are registering now. These congressional districts do not exist, and it may be almost certain that they will never exists, but if they do they will have some jobs waiting for them. (via)

"Here's a stimulus success story: In Arizona's 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that's what the Web site set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

There's one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts.

And ABC News has found many more entries for projects like this in places that are incorrectly identified.
