The New York Post has a startling report, which could point to yet another scandal brewing for this administration.
Take yourself back to the months right before the 2012 presidential election. In September 2012, the unemployment rate magically dropped from 8.1% to 7.8%. It certainly raised a lot of eye brows, especially since the report included an increase in new jobs we hadn't seen in quite some time.
As it turns out, those numbers may have been fabricated. A reliable source says that the numbers were knowingly manipulated by an employee who faked results of the household survey, which is used by the Census Bureau to tabulate the unemployment rate.
The employee caught faking the results claims that he was told to make up the information by higher-ups at the Census Bureau.
If this report is true, it calls into question the integrity of an entire system that relies on these numbers for our economic outlook and business decisions that effect us all. It would also highlight the desperate measures some will take just to get their guy elected.
