The authors write a tongue-in-cheek report that details Delaware Republican Senator John Williams’s findings surrounding the use of a federal grant. This grant was meant to set into motion an anti-poverty plan in Harlem, called the Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited, but Williams reports, instead, that the money was used on high salaries, high expense accounts, and other various frivolities. The authors emphasize that the grant was made up of taxpayer money.
