Description

This series of reports shows how lax government oversight has allowed state subsidized child-care centers to fraudulently collect millions of tax dollars. We found new centers popping up like dandelions to bilk the system. In one case, a former county welfare worker used her connections to open a daycare that collected more than 2 million in subsidies while offering very little actual child care. In another case, a provider hired her brother to provide food to the child care center at double the normal cost. That brother is now serving prison time for supporting a Somali terrorist organization.
