I think Senator Tom Coburn was right to pick up on this case and call it into question. Wether the "adult baby" is disabled isn't the issue. The issue is wether or not he is physically and mentally capable (not willing but simply capable) of supporting himself.

He had a blog he used to write (it might still exist) where he talks about the investigation. He mentioned that he had to take a number of pain pills for his back in order to build the crib and do other things, but this wasn't showned on the t.v. show.

So much of this 'investigation' was like that. He was questioned after the fact, and he could have easily lied to them about what he was and wasn't capable of doing. They would have no way of knowing exactly what the truth was unless they secretly videotaped him.
