Your tax dollars at work: Freddie Mac tweets up an Oscar night storm

Freddie Mac isn’t the name of a rapper. It’s the behemoth, bailed-out government sponsored enterprise in the mortgage business that has been a chronic den of fraud and cronyism.

Last night, @FreddieMac — which appears to be the Twitter account of the taxpayer-subsidized mortgage lender, but does not have a blue verified check mark — weighed in on the critically important matter of…singer Adele.

Someone at the agency retweeted well-known misogynist Bill “Pig” Maher.

Your tax dollars at work!

Uhhhh… RT @freddiemac: Amen RT @billmaher Adele is better than that song

But wait. That’s not all:

RT @bucketofwisdom: That funny moment when you use Bernie Mac instead of Freddie Mac in your research paper.

Thanks in advance to @reformedbroker & @moorehn for making the #Oscars far more entertaining.

Say what? One tweeter screencapped Freddie Mac’s Oscar binge:

I’m pretty excited that @freddiemac‘s RTs tonight show that they’re upset about the racial and gender makeup of #Oscar voters! #oscars
