Jason Mattera is a young hero – no doubt about it. He confronts Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) about the $12 million in Stimulus funds that went to a non-existant Congressional District in Virginia.
At first, Moran grovels in Mattera’s “thanks” for getting the money for Virginia’s 12th. Then Moran ‘gets it’ and you can see his aides trying to step in. Mattera asks “why don’t you show some respect for taxpayer dollars?” Moran’s body language goes into fighting mode, but unfortunately for him – he had no real defense. He finally tells Moran that it was just a “clerical error.” Jason reminds him that “billions went to districts that don’t exist.” Moran aides are nervous – but they don’t daunt Mattera.
