Well, well… Another dishonest Democrat? Why are we not surprised? Is there any other kind of Democrat? I guess once they learn how to lie, cheat and defraud others are incapable of stopping themselves. It is in their DNA.
Via The Daily Caller: “American professor of economics and Obamacare architect Jonathan Holmes Gruber was busted for putting in place a fraudulent billing scheme meant to make him extra money. As you can guess, it came at the expense of taxpayers.
Vermont’s Attorney General has settled the state’s claims of fraud against Jonathan Gruber. Under the terms of the settlement, Gruber will no longer work as a taxpayer-funded economic consultant for the state’s health care system and he won’t seek to be paid any money he might be owed.
Gruber has denied committing fraud. To resolve the case, he has agreed to forgo additional payments the state owed him, a total of $90,000 in outstanding payments. The case was settled under the state’s Civil False Claims Act, which the attorney general’s office determined he had violated.
Specifically, investigators concluded that Gruber sent two invoices — and possibly more — falsely charging the state and its taxpayers for work which was never actually completed by Gruber or any of his underlings.
The dollar amounts sought by Gruber in the two invoices are not clear.
Under the terms of Gruber’s consulting contract, he was supposed to receive up to $400,000 for his policy advice concerning single-payer health care in Vermont.”
So the Obamacare architect is, once again, discovered to be a liar and a fraud. Is anyone really surprised? Not me. After all, Obama was a crook who hired crooks. However, the sad part is that it’s not a crime against the USA, it’s a crime against the taxpayers of Vermont.
Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy. The only thing missing is the criminal prosecution. How in the world are these people walking away with a slap on the wrist? Who is protecting the US taxpayer? Certainly not a considerable number of our elected officials, it seems.
