MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) – For five months, Fox 9 has been investigating what appears to be rampant fraud in a massive state program. This fraud is suspected of costing Minnesota taxpayers as much as a hundred million dollars a year.
The Fox 9 Investigators reporting is based on public records and nearly a dozen government sources who have direct knowledge of what is happening.
These sources have a deep fear, and there is evidence to support their concerns, that some of that public money is ending up in the hands of terrorists.
The article goes on to state the following:
This story begins at Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on.
On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country.
Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms.
Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP International. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond.
Sources said last year alone more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.
Fox 9 reported that Glen Kerns, a former Seattle police detective, has also tracked millions of dollars in cash that left on flights from Seattle, and discovered that the money was being funneled to the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group. In the Seattle case, Kerns discovered the money was coming from individuals who just happened to be on government assistance in the U.S., and said it’s welfare fraud.
Five years ago the Fox 9 Investigators were first to report that daycare fraud was on the rise in Minnesota, exposing how some businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.
“It’s a great way to make some money,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said.
In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers need to sign up low income families that qualify for child care assistance funding.
Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.
Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare.
Fox 9 reports that 10 daycares are currently under active investigation in Minnesota, and that sources in the Somali community have stated “it is an open secret that starting a daycare center is a license to make money.” CLICK HERE to read the full report.
