3 GOP Reps Rip Ag Department's Race Settlement

They convened a news conference to announce that the settlement, which the White House supports, included people who were never even farmers, The Hill Reports.

And King said the Obama administration can’t cry ignorance on this one. “I think they have turned a blind eye to the fraud and corruption here," he said.

The trio urged Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate those receiving government money to make sure they really are farmers.
