Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...
Really Long Distance
The government program providing phones to low-income Americans has been issuing cell phones to dead people.
Congressman Tim Griffin of Arkansas says phones have been sent to deceased relatives of constituents under the Lifeline program.
Lifeline has already been criticized for sending multiple phones to one user, providing phones to underage residents, and giving phones to people who do not qualify.
Griffin wants to dial back on that program to provide only landline service. And to stop providing Lifeline to the dead.
