Census hires criminals to case your house, err collect data

How's this for Government competence?
A Senate Subcommittee hearing today revealed that nearly 36,000 Census Bureau employees were hired despite the fact that the fingerprint component of their criminal record checks was botched. Despite additional name checks recommended by the FBI, the GAO said that it was possible that more than 200 employees hired by the Census Bureau had criminal records, and were in contact with the public while canvassing for the ongoing 2010 census.
I'm really looking forward to when they hire interior decorators to evaluate my healthcare needs....I mean, what could go wrong?
