The U.S. attorney’s office in Springfield has been busy the past few years investigating a variety of fraud schemes involving state grants. Thirteen people have been charged so far, six who have pleaded guilty.

Two of them have ties to President Barack Obama. One is the daughter of his controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Another was chief of staff to Obama’s longtime friend Eric E. Whitaker when Whitaker was Illinois’ public health chief.

In all, prosecutors are alleging a total of $16 million in fraud involving state health or commerce department grants and contracts.

    why is this not surprising? Is there anything about our government and this administration that is not fraudulent?

    Not to diminish my “shock” at liberal corruption, but, the police chief in the picture is pretty hot! 🙂

    Total Corruption, there is no other way to describe it. We need more common man rather than elite rulers.

    Sure hope they catch up with the putrid piece of crap called our president and throw him in the clink. And other then having the title of president, he has did nothing for the American people except put the screws to us.

    And everyone thinks ACORN is gone. They are doing backdoor reparations and daring anyone to say anything about it. Eric Holder has their back for them. Look at the people Obama is appointing behind the peoples back. If you think we aren’t in trouble then you aren’t awake. How is this transformation of America working out for all of us?

    The problem isn’t a lack of money. It’s where it goes. It seems to find it’s way into the hands of individuals and businesses that will misuse funds that could be used better elsewhere.

    Makes me feel so good at the end of the day after working a 12 hr shift, making some overtime, which will be heavily taxed, and seeing THIS.

    We should be able to opt out of paying taxes. :/
