New WCW Investigation: $82K Tax Dollars for Stuttering Mice

23 April 2016 | Newsworthy

Thanks to your support, White Coat Waste just exposed even more senseless government waste and abuse in the Beltway: $82,822.31 to create stuttering mice.

You read that correctly.

As we just exposed to Elizabeth Harrington at the Washington Free Beacon:

The work was supported by several NIH grants, including a National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders project that has received $16,564,461 since 2007.

Now more details are emerging about this disturbing and disgusting story, just picked up by Fox News. And just how do make a mouse “stutter” in a government laboratory?

Money quote from The Guardian:

To find out whether rodents can be made to stutter … Mouse pups make spontaneous sounds when they are taken from their mothers, but also when they are in pain, meet another mouse, or want to attract a mate.
