Top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa from California is utilizing a new technique to hold the federal government accountable for millions of dollars spent on controversial signs boasting your “taxpayer dollars at work” on stimulus projects: crowd sourcing.

Issa is “seeking the investigative help of Americans fed up with both President Obama’s failed ‘stimulus’ program and the taxpayer-funded propaganda signs,” a press release said.

“Seen a sign?  Take a picture and send it with the address and location to stimulussigns@mail.house.gov.”

Issa has made the Obama administration’s energetic use of road signs one of his key oversight areas in recent months. Issa and other critics argue the signs are a waste of money and designed for political purposes. The Obama administration says the signs are a key method for bringing transparency to the stimulus law.

Below is a map detailing the current information held by Issa regarding the signs.
