State Assemblywoman Naomi Rivera (D-Bronx, NY) Rivera filed state papers listing her boy-toy Tommy Torres as her full-time "community-relations director" collecting a weekly $1,100 govt paycheck. BUT DOE records list Torres as a “full-time” Brooklyn public school gym teacher.....

SOUNDS LIKE GOVT FRAUD TO TAXPAYERS Torres is collecting two government paychecks claiming he's performing two full-time jobs simultaneously)?

JUST WONDERING Is Torres also collecting disability, Workmen's Comp, UI, SSI, SS, state pensions, etc, etc, etc? Is he using multiple identities to ride the govt gravy train?

Time for the NY Assembly to learn from the Illinois House, insofar as getting rid of Derrick Smith.

RIVERA GETS PUMPED-—TAXPAYERS GET THE BILL Rivera wants taxpayers to believe her love life has “nothing to do with her legislative career.” But tax-funded no-show jobs is commonly known as govt fraud-—and, besides, forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for her sex life is extortion.

WHAT IS THE RIVERA FAMILY UP TO? Assemblyman Naomi Rivera’s father is state Assemblyman Jose Rivera (D-Bronx) the party boss ousted over charges of {cough} nepotism. Naomi’s brother is NYC Councilman Joel Rivera.

Are the Riveras using multiple identities and stolen SS nos to collect other govt checks and benefits? Falsifying govt documents incurs several felonies and might involve forgery.

What did the Riveras declare on their IRS returns.....did they pay taxes on income derived from govt largesse?

L/E needs to determine whether to file (1) criminal tax fraud charges (2) for deliberately misstated income, (3) for filing falsified documents, and, (4) possibly failing to declare and pay taxes on “income interest.”

COMMONLY USED PRACTICES TO FACILITAE GOVT FRAUD Falsifying govt documents incurs several felonies and might involve forgery.

L/E might also employ Bank Secrecy Laws if bank accounts were used fraudulently.

REFERENCE Under the Bank Secrecy Act, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity that might be indicative of government fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes.

The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the tax-paying public by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, govt fraud, tax evasion, money laudering and other unlawful activities.

The investigations are monitored by the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation unit.

NEED TO KNOW To cover their tracks, govt fraudsters might have created fake invoices that falsely show that govt money was being used for legitimate purposes, perhaps forged statements to cover the transfer of govt funds into secret bank accounts.

Govt fraud can also be facilitated by bank withdrawals, purchases on bank credits and intrabank transfers from legislative accounts into personal bank accounts.

A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, resort travel and gifts from luxury outlets for wives, mistresses, significant others. And large purchases of untraceable casino chips, and requests to wire transfer
casino funds to bank accounts.

L/E is directed to get ahold of : (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, (8) any other books or records, and (9) purchases of card cards witr large balances.

L/E should also explore govt monies paid to (a) stockbrokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.

L/E should scrutinize bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) request for withdrawals.

Bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC and other accounts, to operate personal businesses/law firms, and the like.there are bank accounts and checking accounts (also accounts with brokerages) from which deposits and withdrawals could be made.

<><><>WRT credit cards——those are frequently used to facilitate fraud......placing large sums of money on the cardostensibly for large purchases.......that are later turned into cash.

<><><>WRT lines of credit——falsified documents listing fictitious net worth in order to get LOC.

BY day she is a respected politician who strives to make life better for her constituents.

Democrat politician Naomi Rivera's Facebook page shows her to be committed to issues concerning women and children that she takes before the New York State Assembly.There are videos showing her commitment to those issues.

The New York Post revealed that Rivera has a secret, personal Facebook page as Daniela Rivera, a sultry single 47-year-old who "shows off her curves, her dance moves and, exposes "the top of her lacy red bra".

It also exposed that the politician has a lover Tommy Torres, a fellow Democrat who is six years younger, who she put on her pay roll.

Rivera, who used her middle name for the account, posted dozens of photos with Torres. Records show Torres made $18,123 in salary while working for Rivera for four months in 2010 when he had a full time job as a gym teacher and high school sports coach.

"Mr. Torres did work part time for my district office,” Rivera told the New York Post.

"It was for a period of four months ending in 2010. Because of his background in education, during those four months he was actively involved representing me in educational and at community events."

She did not deny they were an item but refused to comment on her relastionship.

“The Facebook page you are referring to is my own personal page, having nothing to do with my professional career, and I wish you would respect my privacy."

The page has now been deleted form Facebook.

If the fraudsters are gamblers, they could have put stolen govt funds into untraceable casino chips which can be cashed-in anywhere in the world.

Casino bigwigs are happy to comply with L/E-—b/c they fear losing casino licenses. Casinos are wary of fraudulent activities——since it could put them in jeopardy. That’s why they keep meticulous records.

All of a high roller’s gambling wins and losses are recorded on casino books.

Charges might include: (1) criminal tax fraud (2) deliberately misstating income, (3) filing false returns, (4) falsifying official documents, (5) intentionally mislabeling personal expenditures as business expenses, (6) utilizing funds inappropriately, (7) fraudulent use of govt funds for lavish personal expenditures, (8) fraudulently declaring to the IRS personal expenditures as legitimate business expenses.

Several ways to find out chip buys:
(1) casinos have to submit financial records to state casino control commissions-—the info would be there.

(2) L/E could ask how many casino chips were sold compared to how many actually were used for wagers.

Casinos record all their patrons’ betting activities b/c some winners hide waging income from the IRS. Moreover, the casinos are protected if the bettors are crooks.

L/E is directed to investigate casino records for wire transfers, gambling wins (which may have been hidden and not declared to the IRS as income), gamblers’ requesting deposits to secret LLC accounts...and the like.

Did the Riveras make large contributions to religious entities? Did they make deals with religious entities? All “charitable” contributions to religous institutions and non-profit groups need rigorous scrutiny.

Religious and other non-profits are frequently-used vehicles for money laundering and tax evasion..... clergy took a cut then deposits the bulk in an offshore account for donors’ use later...all tax free.

Some Central/South America banks will take large cash deposits and no one asks where it came from or if taxes were paid on it.

REFERENCE Dozens of “investments” were setup for Ponzi King Madoff by self-styled California “philanthropist” Stanley Chais.

Later it was found the “philanthropist Chais” had collected a staggering $270 million between 1995-2008, and had been “donating” large sums to religious groups and other non-profits situated in Israel.

Beneficiaries of Chai’s largess were the prestigious Weizmann Institute of Science-—Technion-Israel Institute of Technology—Hebrew Univ of Jerusalem. (SOURCE The Wizard of Lies—Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust- book by Diana Henriques.)

HOLD ALL TICKETS>
WE HAVE A WINNER!

After years of ‘searching’ they finally have a Latina that fits in the A C Powell mode and would make a good replacement for Chuckie Schemer.

Ain’t America really the ‘Land of Opportunity’?

AND YET, the Libs seemingly hate it and tear it down whenever possible, despite THEIR own personal rise to fame?

Collecting two government pay checks?

He's a "doble dipper", of course.

She shows off 1-carat diamond earrings he purchased her for Valentine’s Day, in one photo.

In another, Torres kisses her atop a snow-capped Poconos mountain. She writes underneath: “And then he kissed her...what does it all mean??? He loves her...he loves her not.....He loves her...he loves her not...”

Rivera writes under another photo showing them hugging at a Mets game, “[Heart] Ya Babe!” two months before Rivera hired him.

They are seen on his Facebook page attending the governor’s State of the State Address in 2010.

But long before Torres entered the Facebook picture, “Daniela” was posting racy comments and photos. In one, she’s hugging a hairdresser suggestively, over the comment, “My Floridian stud.”

After Post inquiries, she took down the Daniela page.

Rivera’s father is former Bronx Democratic Party boss and Assemblyman José Rivera, who in 2008 lost control of the borough machine amid charges of nepotism. Her brother is Joel Rivera, a city councilman.

She says she strives to make life better for her "impoverished" constituents who are just here for a better life (and cashing in bigtime----riding the US gravy train under multiple identities).

Rivera is the poster child for sap-happy politicians willing to say they're "for" their fellow man----and hoping to make a buck on it.
