    So in order to win a workers comp case–donations must be paid to Spitzer’s campaign war chest?

    Unless you are already in the “family”- then you get a huge award for fake staged “accidents” and injuries ala ex-convict-sheriff-Corona.

    Dedicated employees are left to limp away…injured…unemployed-screwed! They didn’t know the “benefit” programs are only for the organized crime “family”.

      You got it. Nice leadership, huh?

      Let me give you a better answer. An employee at the Social Services Agency, who is a college graduate with 13 years of service, found an anomaly in her caseload. She found that a nursing home in Garden Grove was stealing patient trust funds from comatose and paralyzed patients. She also found that they were double and triple billing the state. In her task of looking into it, she found that the multi-billion dollar computer system that the IT contract held was being used to steal millions of dollars, that it had been set up so that unscrupulous operators and vendors would have multiple billing numbers. She prepared the information and she went to her superiors. For the last six years, she has been harassed, humiliated and her career destroyed, because she refused to ignore the corruption. Most of these nursing homes were in a certain district, for a certain supervisor on the BoS, who has been getting slush funds and fake campaign donations, but no one could figure out where they came from. Nelson knows. Spitzer knows. They all know. And they have abused this woman so horrifically, that she is ruined. And now they will go to trial for a tiny little case, because she was sickened by this harassment and asked to be repaid for four days pay she was in the hospital. They have spent dozens of thousands of taxpayer funds to cover up this case, because they cannot allow any employee of the county who is honest to survive. This poor woman is ruined, financially and professionally. And make no mistake, they all know.

        why aren’t the state or fed investigating?

        • Lyanna Lyns

          She went to the FBI, to the State Attorney General, to DFEH, to the Justice Department. They all said the same thing, that the money amount isn’t big enough for them to spend the time on it. She appeared before the Grand Jury. She wrote to the BoS and even Congresswoman Sanchez. Now, her career is over, as they are forcing her to leave with no pension, no health insurance and no future.

        What a horrific story! I hope a news outlet will follow this case. To the employee – you did the right thing! That’s what public employees are SUPPOSED to do!

        • Lyanna Lyns

          It is a small comfort, though, when you watch someone’s entire life, reputation and career destroyed. No one will ever to anything to help her.

    Thanks KateD – that explains why Kim had his sister placed at HCA….there must be something there that needs “cleaning”.

    For “to look into – and clear up”, read : “assess, then spin, or suppress.” Along with our crony DA, who prefers chasing civil – suit jackpots to the responsibility of reform, (probably “too boring” to create roadshow work for his favorite underlings) we get a temporary blast of cloying deodorizer when antiseptic (or amputations !) is what’s really needed. Designed to maintain Stinky Status Quo – that’s what we’ve got.

    They are obviously not cleaning up very well. There is a stream of very nasty cases coming from HCA, SSA and other agencies that used to fly under the radar. These cleaning crews can only do so much. If you have an employee who has both a strong, scandalous case as well as a spine of tempered steel, the cleaners cannot do anything.
