Barack Obama -- friend of the dead

Checks being sent to the dead is a time honoured government tradition. Usually the recently passed.

Antoniette Santopadre of Valley Stream was expecting a $250 stimulus check. But when her son finally opened it, they saw that the check was made out to her father, Romolo Romonini, who died in Italy 34 years ago. He'd been a U.S. citizen when he left for Italy in 1933, but only returned to the United States for a seven-month visit in 1969.

Well at least he was an American citizen.

Does it surprise any one that the governments records are not that accurate or up to date?

ACORN probably got him to vote for Barack Obama.
