Without any oversight, accounting, or transparency, environmental activist groups have surreptitiously received at least $37 million from the federal government for questionable “attorney fees.” The lawsuits they received compensation for had nothing to do with environmental protection or improvement.

Last week, Senators Tom Coburn and John McCain issued a report on wasteful spending in the Democrats' federal stimulus package.
Among the more ridiculous uses of taxpayer money, the report pointed out almost $200,000 for an “energy upgrade” at a Roswell animal shelter, including the installation of low-flow toilets. Also highlighted was a Wake Forest University study observing the behavior of monkeys under the influence of cocaine, costing $75,000, as well as over $500,000 to replace windows in an abandoned Forest Service building near Mt. St. Helens.
