(Newser) – James O'Keefe is back, with a new video purporting to show “fraud” within the US Census—but the footage is a just a wee bit less scintillating than the ACORN “fake pimp” videos that made him famous. O'Keefe's signed up to work for the Census and discovered that—prepare to gasp in amazement—supervisors told him to mark a full day's worth of hours on his time sheet, even though they let him leave early.

O'Keefe asks various Census honchos if he should worry that he'd been paid for work he hadn't done, and all of them tell him it's no big deal. “Nobody is going to be questioning it except for you,” one says. And this shocking revelation is only the tip of the iceberg. In a post on Andrew Breitbart's Big Government site, O'Keefe hints that “more Census videos, showing more waste, fraud, and corruption” are coming. (Read more James O'Keefe stories.)
