Pigford fraud?

A report by Gary Hewson, Peter Schweiser, and Andrew Breitbart alleges widespread fraud in the billion-dollar Pigford settlement paid for by taxpayers.

Similarly, on a much smaller scale, Ed Whelan notes an example where the Internal Revenue Service conceded a $250,000 attorneys' fee award to Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders—in a case where federal law would normally preclude fee-shifting.

Is the Obama administration using settlements in litigation to feed taxpayer money to preferred interest groups by failing to zealously represent taxpayer interests?
