Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan just got some terrible news.
The notorious hater of the President and vocal critic of all things Trump might want to turn her attention to her own state after a stunning report shows billions in fraud were paid from the Michigan taxpayers’ coffers.
“An independent audit of the unemployment benefits system found the administration of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer D paid up to $1.5 billion in ‘fraudulent’ claims,” reports Breitbart News.
But thats not the worst part. The investigation points to the possibility of internal fraud. That means Whitmer’s own team may be the perpetrators.
On May 27, 2020, UIA estimated that $1.5 billion of higher-risk claims (claims that otherwise may have been detected by Fraud Manager) had potentially been paid prior to running through Fraud Manager. Additionally, UIA had identified multiple instances of potential internal fraud by UIA personnel and contractors using their access to UIA procedures and systems to fraudulently approve/disburse millions of dollars in federal and state UI claims to ineligible claimants in exchange for payments and kickbacks.
