AG & Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Cuccinelli says that the Federal Government is holding onto money owed VA for Medicare Fraud.
“Later, Treasury officials told us they wouldn’t even turn over the $95 million because of the sequester. This is despite the fact that it’s not federal money, but money that a private defendant paid to settle a case – money which was to be turned over shortly thereafter to our office and the other agencies involved in the investigation,” Cuccinelli says in the attorney general’s release. “Now the hold-up is the IRS, which, according to the Treasury Department, refuses to complete its paperwork so the money can be properly distributed,” he continued. “…It doesn’t take a year to complete the paperwork.”
So it now seems that the IRS is also targeting states run by conservatives. But then again, we already knew the Obama Administration was targeting Virginia. That was obvious when they shut down JFCOM the way they did, among other things.
UPDATE: Because Ken Cuccinelli gets results:
Calling out the Internal Revenue Service, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli on Wednesday said the federal agency was past due in returning $115 million to the state.
Hours later, Cuccinelli’s office announced that federal officials pledged to settle up.
