Jobs 'Saved or Created' in Congressional Districts Don't Exist

Exclusive: Jobs 'Saved or Created' Don't Exist

Human Error Blamed for Crediting New Stimulus Jobs to Nonexistent Places
Here's a stimulus success story: In Arizona's 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that's what the Web site set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.
There's one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts.
And ABC News has found many more entries for projects like this in places that are incorrectly identified.

Really, how stupid can we be?
