Senator Claire McCaskill, a long-time critic of the Lifeline program, has sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office ("GAO"), requesting that it evaluate the FCC's recent reforms.  She requested that the GAO's Forensic Audit and Investigative Service team examine the extent to which the reforms have been effective and whether further reforms are necessary.  The letter also requests that the GAO identify (and presumably study) specific incidents of fraudulent, improper and abusive activity.
