Did you know that the federal government is still spending oodles of your tax dollars looking for the remains of Jimmy Hoffa? From the Detroit News:
The U.S. Justice Department paid $160,000 to the owners of a Milford Township horse farm to replace a barn the FBI removed last summer in a fruitless search for the remains of former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, records released under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act show.
The FBI paid another $65,000 to excavators, anthropologists and other contractors involved in the two-week search, the records released to The Detroit News show.
The $225,000 price tag for the search does not include salary or travel costs for what the FBI said at the time was 40 to 50 agents involved in the dig.
