Pigford Fraud Convictions in Jacksonville Just Tip of the Iceberg

In this exclusive interview, Lee Stranahan talks to Paul Pinkham, a reporter for the Florida Times Union, who was in court for the three Pigford fraud convictions that happened in Jacksonville.

What you’ll hear is that the fraud convictions actually pointed to many, many more crimes because there was testimony that there was a fraud ring that taught people how to file a false claim. Furthermore, convicted fraudster Emma Brooks said that the fraud ring told her the payments were restitution for slavery. It’s clear that these three convictions aren’t isolated cases of fraud and the government, apparently, has never actively pursued the fraud ring.
