Florida ranks 6th among the most corrupt states

So says the Daily Beast which found a few clouds over the Sunshine State when they studied statistics for such crimes as public corruption, extortion, fraud and embezzlement.

An example they site is this:

 In Florida, one recent Medicare fraud case soars to new heights. By all appearances Ihosvany Marquez was a legitimate businessman interested in community health, running eight health clinics in Miami and Orange County.

But each clinic, in fact, had a fake owner who would sign for fraudulent charges for expensive treatments such as infusion therapy and injection therapy.

 Marquez then laundered the money through a car dealership and check cashing stores, to the tune of $61 million in total claims. Marquez used his windfall to live the high life, buying luxury cars, including a Lamborghini Gallardo, investing in racehorses and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on jewelry.

Interesting how the words "Medicare fraud" keep popping up in this election year.
