Once a con, always a con, and this guy take the cake
Said differently, a West Virginia ambulance chaser should have never been trusted in the first place.
Proof once again, that if a job needs to be screwed up, bring in the federal government.
In my closing arguments, I suggest that there is, in fact, no bigger con than the Ponzi scheme than Social Security.
Doubt me, look at the amount you paid in your entire working life and compute how much better off you would be if you had the money taken out of your pay check each month and put into exchange traded mutual funds.
Remember, it was the Democrats when in power that wrote the legislation that made sure that the IRS took 50% of our own contributions. (Source)
The defense rests!
Eric C. Conn, the convicted ringleader of the biggest Social Security disability fraud in history, was supposed to be sentenced Friday. Instead, he’s on the run, and the two whistleblowers who helped expose his scam say they fear for their safety.
A man purporting to be Conn said in the messages that he’s escaped the country, leaving behind a legal mess, hundreds of people who had been kicked off the disability benefits he helped them obtain, and the two frightened whistle blowers who helped expose the fraud.
“We both have serious concerns,” said Jennifer Griffith, a former master docket clerk at the Social Security office in Huntington, West Virginia, where Conn’s scam took place. “I don’t know if he would come after us, but he was stupid enough to do it once. He was stupid enough to follow Sarah.”
That would be Sarah Carver, the other whistle blower, who Conn had followed by his muscle in an effort to intimidate her, and to try to discredit her as a witness against his scheme.
Conn pleaded guilty earlier this year to the fraud, which saw him file nearly 1,750 bogus disability applications.
He paid doctors and a psychologist to write false medical evaluations and paid off a Social Security administrative law judge to rubber-stamp the applications.
