IRS targets, slaps liens on Rep. Daphne Campbell
Miami Herald ^ | July 27, 2012 | Michael Sallah and Marc Caputo

Posted on 07/28/2012 1:44:40 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Already facing a Florida Medicaid fraud probe, state Rep. Daphne Campbell is being investigated by federal agents who are tracing hundreds of thousands of dollars through bank accounts tied to a web of family healthcare businesses, The Miami Herald has learned.

The Internal Revenue Service has slapped $145,000 worth of liens on the lawmaker and her husband, Hubert Campbell. IRS agents have received dozens of documents from former business associates who say the Campbells scammed them. And an investigator called Campbell’s legislative aide to question her about her boss.

The allegations, following years of legal troubles for Campbell and her family, have so concerned the Florida Democratic Party that it has called on her to “consider stepping down.” She faces two fellow Democrats in the Aug. 14 primary of the Miami Shores-area district.

Campbell, 55, said she knew nothing of the IRS case before she hung up her phone with a Herald reporter.

“I don’t have no tax liens,” she said when asked particulars of the IRS investigation and liens.

But federal records tell a different story.....

Since no word of party in headline or first couple paragraphs I knew she was a democrat.

The press often uses the abbreviation for Representative whenever they report a Democrat Representive getting caught up in corruption in the hopes thei average idiotic Democrat will assume "rep" means the perp is a Republican. Now, if a Republican representative gets similarly caught they don't use the abbreviation for representative, instead they just call him Republican outright.

It's rare when they spell out Democrat that way.

“I don’t have no tax liens,” either.
Whoa!
Isn’t that a double negative?

Look a little deeper on this one. In the recent past, there have been a number of “health care” enterprises that have sprung up specifically to handle Medicaid claims, and in more than a few instances, the original funding can be traced to - George Soros funding.

WellCare of Tampa, Florida, is neck-deep in various Medicaid payment scandals (or at least they SHOULD be scandals) in which payment for services supposedly delivered, was made either for patients who were never, or rarely, ever seen at their facilities, or by totally fictitious persons. The objective was to further bankrupt the system at both the state and Federal level, as well as diverting a little extra cash that would in the ordinary course of things, not be adequately traced.

This instance appears to be a similar type of scheme, and if traced back far enough, the funding would come from the same or similar sources, liberal-socialist malefactors of great wealth. The objective remains the same, to skim out cash flow from a largely unwatched funding source, and cover the fraud with enough paperwork so as to make it difficult to trace the “error”. I do not say only George Soros money is behind this, but he is already a major player in this effort to cheat deserving persons out of entitlements, earned or not, for benefit of persons who are either perfectly healthy, or who have greatly exaggerated their degree of disability.

This is a cancer that continues to gnaw away at the foundations of a nation already in danger.

Under the Obama Rules, if she is found guilty and sent to prison a few innocent whites and one asian will have to go to prison with her to balance the rate of punishment.

Campell the Dem and her team of swindlers have already got their ObamaScam healthscare exchange up and running. With a little black on black wealth redistribution to boot.

Yes, this is Cloward-Piven mayhem through and through. It is all about gumming up the works and trying (and succeeding so far) to bring this country down. And of course lining one's pockets in the process.

What don't you people understand: Rep. Daphne Campbell is a trificta winner: they are above the law and are allowed to game the system for their advantage

Black, Women, Democrat.

To think otherwise is racist, misogyny, and partisan. /S

They snuck this line in right under the headline at the source. Didn't make it to the exerpt, though.

State Democratic Rep. Daphne Campbell faces IRS and state investigation. The state party wants her to consider resigning.

JFK, patron saint of the Democrat Party, said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.”

What have the Black Democrats at all levels of government, elected by Black Democrats, done for our country?
