FEMA to release addresses of aid recipients — after spending $1.1 million to tell them

That is the title of an August 7 headline here in South Florida. The South Florida Sun Sentinel brought a lawsuit against FEMA because they are trying to investigate massive waste and fraud in disaster aid.
In 2004 FEMA gave out millions of dollars in aid to residents of Miami-Dade County for Hurricane Frances. I am in Ft. Lauderdale; about 50 miles south of the real damage caused by Francis. We lost power but that was it. Broward was up and running within a week having suffered only slight tree and power damage. Sadly, millions of dollars were awarded to individuals in Miami Dade another 40 miles south of me. Our local paper wanted to ask them about it...not disclosing any names publicly but FEMA wouldn't give their addresses. Sunsentinel won the suit and as of August 14 the court required Fema to start handing over the records. Thats why FEMA is calling you now...no coincidences. The worst part of this is FEMA now says it will cost them over a Million to contact everyone? WHAT?
