US dollar notes are checked at a bank. The US Treasury mistakenly sent more than 20 million dollars in stimulus payments to dead people and prisoners as part of an effort to jolt the US economy out of recession, an investigation has found. (AFP/File/Jung Yeon-Je)

I've never thought about this till now, but do prisoners vote? I would think someone behind bars is not part of society till they get out, if they do.
I also wonder if the mailing out of all those checks to dead people was done intentionally. It sure did stimulate the postal economy and created more work for the mailmen. Then someone was paid to research why those checks were undeliverable.
Well, how did they get on the mailing list in the first place? Wouldn’t these be people already receiving SS or some other benefits, so what happened to those?

Not to defend this, but there’s some time lag between the time a person dies and the time SSA becomes aware of it. So it’s inevitable that some payments are going to be sent to dead people for this reason alone.

Sounds like ACORN somehow got access to Social Security records.
