The U.S. has terminated funding for a $20 million project to develop a Pakistani version of "Sesame Street." / 2006 Sesame Workshop
The decision came as a Pakistani newspaper reported allegations of corruption by the local puppet theater working on the initiative.
The organization in question is the Rafi Peer Theater Workshop, a group in the city of Lahore that jointly developed the show with Sesame Workshop, the creator of the American series.
Comment.....So the next time you drive up to your local gas station remember, that part of the Federal Gas Tax goes to paying for something like this...Keep that mind when you pay your Federal Income Tax and when give your Corrupt Washington Lawyers who disguise themselves as your Representatives a raise. Remember this when they help themselves to donations and campaign funding. Keep in mind that this is only the tip of the iceberg here...Obviously someone got caught and it is an election year after all. Remember things like this before you vote for, "You Know Who".....Remember the $20 million dollars of your Tax dollars someone tried to steal....I'd like to know who is responsible for thinking of something stupid like this...Does this person still work for the Government? Did anybody have the presence of mind to check for hidden bank accounts. For off shore accounts? I have never heard of anything like this...Stop all aid to Pakistan and Afghanistan immediately !!! The FBI and the CIA should do a complete investigation on who ever thought of something like this....
