Electronic Road Sign Joins TOTUS, Turns Against POTUS

Last year at PJM, Patrick Richardson explored how pro-“stimulus” road signs were being paid for by taxpayers as pro-Obama propaganda in 2009 and 2010: “Rep. Issa Asks: ‘How Much Are Taxpayers Being Charged for Stimulus Propaganda Signs?’”

In the latest symbol of government extravagance and waste, Pajamas Media has discovered that federal construction signs that officially publicize stimulus projects are costing taxpayers as much as $10,000 apiece.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is questioning the use of public funds to purchase signs advertising funding from the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act — the “stimulus bill” — at construction sites nationwide.

Much like the TOTUS electronically rebelling against its boss from time to time, even the road signs are slowly starting to see the light: “Hacked DOT Road Sign Reads ‘Impeach Obama,'” a North Carolina TV news site notes today.
