1. The greed is stunning

Did they really think they'd never get caught?

2. No. I believe that they think they are a small potato and the big garden.

Course this type of fraud has been going on since the beginning of time. Anytime you have government giving money youíre gonna have people who are going to scam. Plus we do have 330 million people in the country so youíre gonna have a percentage that are going to be like this. I mean if you look at the percentage itís under 1%. 99% are good folks at least in this area.

4. This is true

But it still blows my mind. It's not like they skimmed small, insignificant amounts of money that might go unnoticed. It was not just immoral, it was flat-out stupid and reckless. I think there are some people who just can't help themselves. If they see "free money", they cannot resist and cast all caution to the wind.

3. ...

I'm disgusted with that fact that people of congress got any of that money. More disgusted with the fact that they also got loan forgiveness. While regular citizens died.

5. Interesting to call it "fast"

 

When Minnesota's Department of Education strongly suspected Feeding Our Future in 2020, and the state took action to stop the fraud. They explicitly cited their suspicions about the rapid increase in funding requests and monies sought as their reason for cutting off the funding.

The charlatan even tried to sue the MN DoE over the loss of funding. Whine a bunch of garbage about discrimination. The usual grifter crybaby crap.

I'm not sure when the DOJ got involved, but it's still been over two years since the crime spree started--and only now are they facing consequences for it.
