Known Criminal Spends Federal AIDS Money on Strip Club

If there’s any more room in the Your Tax Dollar at Work file, stuff this one in it. From the District of Criminals:

D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan has accused a District HIV/AIDS service provider of spending nearly $330,000 in federal tax dollars to open a strip club.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, Nathan said Miracle Hands Inc. promised the city it was using the cash to renovate a warehouse in Northeast for use as a job training center for residents with HIV/AIDS. Instead, the warehouse was turned into the Stadium Club, a strip club that continues to operate, the suit says. Miracle Hands shares an address with the club, according to the company’s website. …

Attempts to reach Miracle Hands owner Cornell Jones were not successful. Jones is a self-described former D.C. drug kingpin with convictions for narcotics distribution on his record.

Our federal overlords turned over $330,000.00 of our money to a known criminal to open a facility supposedly catering to people who spread AIDS. Anyone surprised the money was not spent constructively?

It is well past time for Big Government to get out of the do-gooder business and every other business that the Constitution does not specifically enumerate as its responsibility.
