According to court documents, John Davis, 54, of Jackson, Mississippi, and his co-conspirators fraudulently obtained and misused federal funds – including funds from two programs, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) – for their personal use and benefit. At Davis’s direction, MDHS provided federal funds to two nonprofit organizations and then directed the two nonprofit organizations to fraudulently award contracts to various entities and individuals for social services that were never provided.
Wait, you mean all that talk about poor people being lazy, no-account criminals who want government handouts is … projection???!?!
In addition, Davis caused the nonprofit organizations to disburse full or almost-full payments pursuant to those sham contracts at or near the beginning of the contract periods, regardless of whether any work had been performed and knowing that no significant services would be provided.
Mississippi has the highest overall poverty rate and the highest poverty rate for children in the nation. I guess the fucking parasites who took food from their mouths figured that since people were already poor, a little more couldn’t hurt.
Davis faces a minimum of five and a maximum of 10 years for the federal crime. A bagatelle compared to 32 years in a state prison.
