Food Stamp data showing large increase delayed until after election?

If it is actually true that these data aren't released after the second day of the month, it would be hard to come up with a benign explanation for why it was released on the 9th this time.
On Friday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released their most recent data on U.S. participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), more commonly referred to as 'food stamps.'
While the report is ordinarily released at either the end of the month, or no later than the first or second day of the following month, the Obama administration waited until November 9, a full three days after the election to announce the number of Americans currently receiving food stamps.
After seeing the data, it is not surprising why the administration delayed the report...
By the end of August 2012 (the most recent data), there were 47.1 million Americans on food stamps, a new all-time record high.
Another 420,947 Americans were added to the food stamp rolls from the previous month of July, representing the largest monthly increase in a year. . . .
One could write a book on everything that the Obama administration seems to be hiding from the public.
