I predicted this would happen.
Profiteering ghouls have been using debit cards distributed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina – intended to buy essentials for evacuated families – in luxury-goods stores as far away as Atlanta.
“We’ve seen three of the cards,” said a senior employee of the Louis Vuitton store at the Lenox Square Mall in affluent Buckhead, who asked not to be named. “Two I’m certain have purchased; one actually asked if she could use it in the store. This has been since Saturday.” Two women who had made purchases with the card each bought a signature monogrammed Louis Vuitton handbag in the $800 range.
The distinctive white cards were distributed by the Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency and carry a value of up to $2,000.
Just wait for it…the Left will claim that these people deserve to use government assistance to purchase $800 handbags, because it makes them feel good and not “less than”.
Unbelievable. I’m outraged by this.
