St. Augustine mayoral candidate BILL McCLURE under "ongoing" criminal investigation re: possible health care fraud, conspiracy to commit health care fraud, Medicaid provider fraud, grand theft, falsifying a death certificate and practicing medicine without a license.


I wrote the Florida Attorney General's office this morning concerning St. Augustine Mayoral candidate WILLIAM McCLURE, ex-Commissioner, and an "ongoing" state and federal investigation of possible crimes by McCLURE and his mother, PAULA STOWELL, and their alleged Medicaid mill, Medi+M.D. 

The "ongoing" investigation covers "possible health care fraud, conspiracy to commit health care fraud, Medicaid provider fraud, grand theft, falsifying a death certificate and practicing medicine without a license." 

That's BILL McCLURE (above, second from left, with the goofy gooberish grin), on the occasion of the ribbon-cutting for the new fancy-bears St. Johns County Health Department (a/k/a "Gauze Mahal") building in 2016.  

St. Johns County purchased a large pair of $140 ceremonial scissors (center); they have apparently disappeared.  (My request No. 2016-94).

Subject: Request No. 2018-155: Medi+M.D., Ex-Commissioner WILLIAM McCLURE & PAULA STOWELL Criminal Fraud Investigation






Dear General Gleason and Ms. Jacobs:
I write to you today with an urgent request, in the public interest in open government:
1. Please send me the search warrant return and an index to the files on the "ongoing" investigation of Medi+M.D., St. Johns County ex-County Commissioner WILLIAM McCLURE, and his mother, PAULA STOWELL.  
2. Search warrants were reportedly executed October 9, 2014 at Medi+M.D. offices at 167 Palencia Village Drive and 600 South Plantation Island Drive in St. Johns County by state and federal investigators, concerning possible health care fraud, conspiracy to commit health care fraud, Medicaid provider fraud, grand theft, falsifying a death certificate and practicing medicine without a license.  
3. Please send me all correspondence with current and past criminal and civil defense counsel for McCLURE and STOWELL, including Mr. Curtis Fallgatter of Fallgatter and Catlin, P.A. of Jacksonville.  
4. Please include any letter(s), memos or agreements, including any agreement(s) to extend application statutes of limitations, or stating whether McCLURE and STOWELL are considered "subjects, targets or witnesses."
5. By copy of this e-mail, I request that WILLIAM McCLURE and PAULA STOWELL agree to waive any privacy rights and authorize release of all records on this case not protected by HIPPAA.
6. Last week, ex-Commissioner WILLIAM McCLURE announced his candidacy for Mayor of St. Augustine.  
7, Touting his "business experience," WILLIAM McCLURE is claiming that the "ongoing" investigation has "nothing to do with" his candidacy for Mayor (and that he sold his interest in Medi+M.D.  in 2015).  http://www.staugustine.com/news/20180601/former-county-commissioner-mcclure-enters-mayoral-contest
8. Please expedite your response; our primary election is on August 28, 2018.
Thank you.

With kindest regards, I am,
Sincerely yours,
Ed Slavin
