Boy, That's A Shocker

Massachusetts can't find thousands of missing welfare recipients

Boston- Governor Deval Patrick is downplaying the Department of Transitional Assistance admission that it could not locate 19,000 people who have either been receiving welfare benefits.
The Department of Transitional Assistance says 19,000 letters came back, marked "Return to Sender."
I can help you with this...

Cancel their friggin' EBT cards, Dumbass.
They'll be coming out of the woodwork, man.

And the real Captain Obvious moment:
The group filed suit against Massachusetts because the DTA was not giving welfare recipients the opportunity to register to vote. That suit was filed on behalf of a Lowell woman who said she was never offered an opportunity to register to vote.
As part of the settlement, the state agreed to mail out 478,000 letters to welfare recipients, at a cost of $276,000. The daughter of Senator Elizabeth Warren, Amelia Tyagi, is chairwoman of the Board of the advocacy group. During the senate campaign, then Senator Scott Brown criticized the state, arguing the mass mailing was a plan to push more democratic voters to the polls.
Really, Mr. Brown... Ya think?
