So, it's much ado about nothing...

LEWISTON — A city effort to clean up the General Assistance rolls in 2013 may not have resulted in many convictions, according to Mayor Robert Macdonald, but it did bring the issue of Maine welfare fraud more into focus.

So, it's much ado about nothing...

"Before we did this, we were told the issue of fraud in General Assistance was anecdotal, that it just didn't matter," he said. "Well, we proved this was not anecdotal."

I suppose he's right. Six summonses and one conviction makes their spending hundreds of dollars to save $1, valid. The 84 that were purged were thieves.  They had nothing to do with the system other than they were stealing from it.  Wal-Mart is not going to close up shop because there are shoplifters.
