Remember how we always suspected the Obama Administration was cooking the books on the unemployment numbers? We pretty much have confirmation on that. This whistleblower tried to blow the whistle on data falsification at the Obama Department of Commerce, and was punished for it.
Let’s look at the one case that set Butler off — the cheating done by Buckmon, who is now deceased.
Buckmon would complete more than 100 cases in 10 days — more than three times his peers.
It turns out that Buckmon wasn’t actually surveying people. He was making up data and collecting overtime to account for the time it would have taken to get those interviews.
And this one man alone was cheating on such a large scale that it could affect the national jobless numbers since the bureau’s Current Population Survey is scientifically weighted and each response counts as 5,000 households.
So Buckmon’s 100 cases equaled 500,000 households — and he wasn’t the only one caught faking data, Butler said.
