Here is one of the least surprising revelations ever leaked from the federal government: According to an internal Census Bureau document, major, uncorrectable errors may result from forcing the bureau’s enumerators and number-crunchers to rush through the decennial count. House Oversight and Reform Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., revealed the document this month, claiming it was a presentation for Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who oversees the bureau. It shows that the decision of Senate Republicans and the Trump administration to give the bureau no more time to finish a count that started late and has encountered pandemic-related problems threatens to corrupt for a decade the process of distributing congressional seats and doling out some $1.5 trillion in annual federal aid.

“A compressed review period creates risk for serious errors not being discovered in the data — thereby significantly decreasing data quality,” the document warns.

Oh now the Democ rats are concerned with the Census not counting Illegals to their fullest extent by the rushed process which they caused by allowing for decades the counting of ILLEGALS!
