$47,000 worth of swag in Florida…
From the Orlando Sentinel:
If you got a free Census T-shirt at an Orlando Magic game, your swag came at taxpayers’ expense.
The U.S. Census Bureau spent $47,000 on 20,000 shirts given to Magic fans during a nationally televised game, but the bureau’s message wasn’t entirely clear to everyone who received the shirts.
A local television station interviewed people who said they were puzzled by the meaning behind the shirt’s “Be Counted” message.
