As much as $30 Billion dollars will be injected into relief and rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast. Two New Jersey Democrats fear that fraud will run rampant soon - and they refuse to let waste and corruption ensue.

"Unfortunately, we have seen too often that people will take advantage of a crisis to better themselves at the public’s expense," Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-Gloucester) told The Star-Ledger Thursday.

The words spoken by Mr. Sweeney ring true on so many subjects! Gotta love when someone speaks the truth.

"We can’t allow that in New Jersey. These monitors will save money by ensuring funds are spent efficiently and effectively and by overseeing the ethical conduct and proper behavior of those we are entrusting to help rebuild our state."

Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-Essex) said the legislation they plan to introduce soon would provide for several paid "integrity monitors," probably working under the Treasury Department or Comptroller’s office, to oversee rebuilding projects.

They deserve a round of applause, in my opinion.

Good point. We can only hope that the people involved continue to act with honesty and integrity.

I think it's probably a great idea but there is a New York example of the state firing someone who finds that the money is being spent improperly.

Sandy auditor let go after criticizing state

An independent consultant who examined New York's spending for Superstorm Sandy found what he believes are questionable transactions and practices ......The consultant, who was expelled by the state after issuing a series of recommendations to improve procurement practices, said it appeared from his examination that government officials bought and rented equipment that should have been stockpiled or lined up months or years earlier, and sought to acquire assets that didn't seem necessary for the immediate tasks at hand.

In New York at least, they'll fire you if you point out where they are wasting money, or what they neglected to do before a catastrophe.
