When it comes to cooking the books, this administration is Julia Child

The Obama administration is ordering people who offer to work election day polling places are now being to file tax withholding forms, reports John Crudele of the New York Post, a move that could pad the nation's employment numbers by just 30,000 to 36,000 in New York City alone in the final monthly employment report before the November election.

"The Internal Revenue Service has determined that all poll workers are considered employees of the Board of Elections for tax purposes," said a Board memo dated Aug. 2 and signed by Rosanna Kostamoulas Rahmouni, coordinator of Election Day Operations, the Post reports. Poll workers get just $100 for training and $200 for their work.

The Obama administration similarly inflated plunging job numbers by classifying many census workers as temporary, which creates a new "job" every time their employment in the position was extended.
