State Dept Spent $630,000 on Sock Puppets

The real problem here is that the sock puppets are the best people we have in the State Department.

State Department officials spent $630,000 to get more Facebook “likes,” prompting employees to complain to a government watchdog that the bureau was “buying fans” in social media, the agency’s inspector general says.

The department’s Bureau of International Information Programs spent the money to increase its “likes” count between 2011 and March 2013.

Wow just think how many Priuseses they could have bought with that. Or security guards even.
