How crooks made money off Katrina

The AP's got a good story about Katrina fraud, cases where people took advantage of the disaster to get government or charitable aid. So far, about 600 people have been charged in federal cases. Some of the anecdotes are pretty outrageous. One woman said two of her kids, both nonexistent, died in the flood. Aid was also sent to people who applied from prison.

Hat Tip: Thanks, Doc!
