Remember when the unemployment rate dropped sharply in August of 2012? He really helped the Obama campaign distract the voters from the awful economic reality. There was no economic recovery. And now The NY Post is reporting that government has been actively falsifying the unemployment numbers. Gee, you think?
"Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy. And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today."

The New York Post lost a lot of credibility with me when they reported a lot of false information after the Boston bombing. However, they are now claiming that the Census actually produced fake jobs reports during 2012 to help Obama win re-election. They're claiming that employees conducted fake interviews and lied about the data.
If this can be verified by another news outlet, this will be one hell of a scandal.
