    Great read, thanks for posting. I used to work for the State of Illinois and saw countless things like this happen there.

    "The spending increased the bureau's English-language Facebook page likes from 100,000 to more than 2 million and to 450,000 on Facebook's foreign-language pages."

    Best part is that it is absolutely no value to them. Just a complete government waste and people are starving all over the world!

    They do this because they do not fear being killed for squandering the life-resources they have stolen from the taxpayers at gunpoint.

    So it's alright for government officials to buy fans but if a normal person does it then they get their page taken away?

    lol :D

    If they would have bought from bhw, If they would have bought the fans from either me or any other reputed fb sellers over here, it would have saved them a huge amount of money !!

    630,000 $ is huge !!!!

    No sweat! You brought more attention to it than I did! I was alarmed when I saw it. This should have had more exposure.
