I was just listening to the BOS meeting regarding welfare fraud. Although I believe this is a matter of Supervisor Lovingood creating a campaign issue, one good thing could come out of it.
As I have stated time and again, the issue is NOT with the DA prosecuting cases. The issue is that Linda Haugan, Nancy Swanson, and Virginia Lugo create an environment where employees are strongly discouraged from reporting and investigating welfare fraud including IHSS. It is also rampant in Sandy Harsen’s department. The true welfare frauds are these four women who are more interested in building empires than being ethical, good stewards of taxpayer money.
So, the suggestion that the welfare fraud investigators be moved to the district attorney’s is an excellent one. The crooks won’t be in charge of the cops.
