Justice Department Recovers Over $3.7 Billion From False Claims Act Cases in Fiscal Year 2017 (USDOJ OPA Press Release, 2017)
So Florida's Republican-controlled state legislature, Governor and Cabinet intentionally refuse to cover city, county and special taxing district government contractors with Florida's little False Claims Act, even though state contracts are covered. Why? Lobbyists are in control. Stealing our money.
The ARDURRA contract with St. Johns County for FEMA work, hiring former Assistant County Administrator JERRY CAMERON at an extravagant hourly rate, is a case in point. Of course, the federal False Claims Act applies to those dollars, and we look forward to a qui tam whistleblower coming forward and using the Abraham Lincoln law to expose any wrongdoing.
