Washington, D.C. James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas today released the fourth in a series of undercover investigations into Medicaid fraud.  Citizen journalists have uncovered widespread Medicaid fraud in state offices across the country. 

In the latest video, an undercover reporter attempts to apply for Medicaid benefits in Richmond, Virginia and several other offices in the Commonwealth.

The reporter indicates that he is a drug dealer who traffics in “Bob Marley pharmaceuticals.”

“But we won’t get in trouble for running the drug business or like illegal prostitution?” asks man posing as drug dealer and owner of an $800,000 vehicle.  The worker in Richmond responds, “No, just leave that off your application” and reiterates “Don’t put that on there.”

“In this time of economic uncertainty, the American people deserve to know how their tax dollars are being wasted.” said James O’Keefe.   “As Project Veritas has shown, this is not an isolated incident.  Government workers willing to aid people with criminal backgrounds and great wealth should be an outrage to every American.  After tape of a similar investigation in Ohio was released, one Medicaid worker has already been put on paid administrative leave.  This should be a wake-up call for close scrutiny of the Medicaid system.”
