The following letter has been submitted to Representative Don Young for consideration and action. Thank you for your publication services.

Representative Young, Why is this kind of crap allowed to exist?

More importantly, why do I have to submit the fact that I am now aware of this and you, the supposed watch dog of our tax dollars and now they are spent may claim no knowledge of the issue. Must be the case as if you did and had done nothing you should be taken to task for ignorance.

Yes, I want to know you are following with the correct congressional group addressing and stopping it pronto!!!

"The Obama administration funneled billions of dollars to activist organizations through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme, according to congressional investigators.

It s clear partisan politics played a role in the illicit actions that were made, Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, told Fox News. The DOJ is the last place this should have occurred.

Findings spearheaded by the House Judiciary Committee point to a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism." Fox News' Article, click here...
