Where Did Those Broadband Stimulus Funds Go?

If we need any more evidence that stimulus funds did little to stimulate anything other than bureaucratic incompetence then all we have to do is look at how the Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service pissed away Broadband Initiatives Program money by allocating far too much of it to communities that already had broadband services available rather than to those with none.

I thought it was ironic that one rural town here in this state received RUS stimulus funds when it already had DSL available while another town not all that far away with only dialup Internet services received not one thin dime.

Which community needed broadband more? Not the one that received the stimulus funds.
