DOJ Wants $5.4 Million Back From S.F.

The U.S. Department of Justice wants San Francisco to repay $5.4 million in grant money earmarked to help fight the war on drugs in states bordering Mexico because federal auditors found the city was not eligible for the funding.

San Francisco had sought the grant under the Southwest Border Prosecution Initiative, which compensates law enforcement agencies in California and other border states for the costs of handling prosecutions in lieu of federal authorities.

As of March of last year, the city claimed it had handled more than 2,241 such cases, but a federal audit released this week found that none of the cases had been referred by federal officials to District Attorney Kamala Harris' office as required under the program.

The audit found that the cases the city cited in its application should have been "disallowed" as "unsubstantiated" under the government's grant criteria.

City officials contacted Thursday were unable to explain the circumstances surrounding San Francisco's application for the grant or how it spent the funds.

Fucking typical! The government of San Francisco openly touts its Sanctuary City status, and then, when the inevitable crime-wave hits, that Obama-loving bitch Kamala Harris tries to bilk the federal government into paying for it! This is just the tip of the iceberg. I hope the feds tear this city a new one.

I am a San Franciscan, proud of what this city used to be, and I hope with all my heart that all federal funding is cut off from this corrupt, criminal city government!
