From KKD: Fines against Nursing Homes are just a slap on the wrist, or less, in Illinois

Fines Against Unsafe Nursing Homes Are Considered A Slap On The Wrist

Mary Mims has 32 years of experience working as a registered nurse, including time spent managing nursing home staffs. None of that could save the life of her mentally ill daughter, Letasha, who at the age of 36 died after an almost two-year stay at the Chicago nursing home Alden Wentworth.

Mims felt she could trust Alden Wentworth. After all, she once worked for its parent company, Alden Management Services, as an administrator overseeing various facilities, including the home where she placed her daughter.

“The mistake I made was gambling on the fact that these people knew me, and I trusted them to take care of my daughter,” Mims says.

Letasha Mims had been diagnosed with schizophrenia after she started showing…

From Ken Ditkowsky–Fines why are we taxing hospitals when most are NFP’s–a bunch of BS govt accounting.

NEW YEAR’S GREETINGS – – The Candor gap!

One of the problems with fraud is that it is a cancer and all too often the adage – “you cannot defraud an honest man” comes into play.    Health care’s 700% fraud surcharge could not happen if the various governments were themselves HONEST.   The Illinois political elite whose criminal activities are such an embarrassment have a great deal of company.   Decent people everywhere are appalled when a major political figure goes on television and has the temerity to tell multiple whoopers that he knows are absolutely untrue.    These same members of the great unwashed get even more upset when the media repeats the prevarication as the truth over and over again and when someone speaks out in frustration: “stop lying!” the protester is labeled *****.
Usually the lying by the POLITICAL ELITE is not obvious, and sometimes it is inventive. …

From GovCuff Group: reasons to NEVER talk to police

excellent video on all the reasons to never talk to a police officer.  there are plenty of reasons why your statements can be twisted and turned even if you are innocent.  just politely say no.  Blame your lawyer.  Blame youtube lawyers. Blame this blog.  But never talk to police.  It’s never a good idea.  I can’t tell you how many times I have seen police reports where the police got just about everything wrong.  I wonder if they go back and write up reports after they have had a drink or two or a toke or two or three or more.  It’s always a bad idea.  And if you are talking to police for any reason, record, record, record.

Merry Christmas to all the corruption victims out there

And Hannukuh blessings and all the other winter time holidays too!

My heart goes out to those of you who cannot see their loved ones this Christmas season because there is a court order, or a GAL order or some sort of other nonsense.

The holidays are for families, but for the families of Mary Sykes, Alice Gore, Rose Drabik, Lydia Tyler, Alan Frake and so many, many more, they were a horror show.  For years, many in probate are not even allowed to know where their loved ones are.  Helen Stone in Florida most assuredly will not see her daughter for Hannukah.  Please pray for them.  Please pray that the psychopaths in charge, the judges, the lawyers and court room vendors lose their hearts of stone for a heart of flesh and blood.

Too many to mention are suffering through the holidays.  Give them your kind thoughts and blessings.

From FB–the Law on Jurors. Can they lie?

Everyone’s see the Juror form.  It asks prospective jurors if they have been accused or convicted of a crime or involved in litigation.

What about the juror that lies?  Can a criminal serve on a jury?  A lying criminal?

Here is the law to use on lying jurors:

” Fraud upon the court” has been defined by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to “embrace that species of fraud which does, or attempts to, defile the court itself, or is a fraud perpetrated by officers of the court so that the judicial machinery can not perform in the usual manner its impartial task of adjudging cases that are presented for adjudication.” Kenner v. C.I.R., 387 F.3d 689 (1968); 7 Moore’s Federal Practice, 2d ed., p. 512, ¶ 60.23. The 7th Circuit further stated “a decision produced by fraud upon the court is not in essence a decision at all, and…

From E.Federova: Lanre Amu’s corrupt ARDC case remains unresolved

As many of you have noted, there is nothing more foul smelling and pernicious to our society than a licensed corrupt lawyer.

Lanre Amu is an honest lawyer who was serving the poor and immigrant. His license was stripped away from him when all he did was point out corruption in the courts.  He did nothing wrong.  In fact, when Chicago Crain’s Business investigated, they found even more corruption on the part of Judge Lynn Egan.

Why isn’t Lanre Amu reinstated with honors and why is Lynn Egan still sitting on the bench?

Go ask Presiding Judge Timmothy Evans, Jerome Larkin and all the other corrupt ARDC lawyers that signed petitions and prosecuted innocent Lanre Amu.


Case:  ARDC v. Amu.  Corrupt lawyers involved:  Robert Verrando, Jerome Larkin, Debra J. Braselton, Andrea D. Rice, Donald D. Torisky

My case, corrupt lawyers:  Melissa Smart, Sharon Opryszek, Sang-yul Lee
Ziad Alnaqib, Jerome Larkin, Stephen Splitt.

From Ken and Judy Ditkowsky–home health care fraud flourishes in Chicago

It appears that Judy found a Chicago Tribune article that is worth reading, to wit:
The article unfortunately did not reference the four GAO reports to Congress,  the umpteen disclosures in the Probate Sharks, NASGA, AAAPG, MaryGSykes blog, the Philip Esformes bullion dollar fraud case, etc.    The authors are reinventing the wheel; however, it is an important start and an update on exactly where we are in the human trafficking scandal.    (As reference point we are one meter into the 250 meter dash! and every one is reinventing the wheel)
Even though the Philip Esformes case was covered by the Chicago Tribune, and the Seth Gillman case received mention the “media investigators” failed to build on what should have been learned from the said cases.
Maybe our best hope is the Department of Treasury (Internal Revenue Service).    The trillion dollars in ‘booty’ that…

From Ken Ditkowsky–Federal Report shows that Illinois leads in nursing home abuses cases

It would be very nice to be naive.   A naive person could believe that the ARDC is interested in protecting the public from dishonest lawyers.   A naive person would believe the words and phrases of Chicago’s mayor.    A naive person would believe that words of the candidates for governor and in particular believe that ‘fat man’ who tots his difficult childhood as the child of billionaires!   A naive person would believe that Chicago elections are honest and every vote counts!    **** Indeed, it would be nice to have just fallen off the cabbage truck!   BUT SUCH IS NOT THE CASE.
If I was ever naive, I was cured of the disease shortly after I received my law license and a Judge called my home and stated: “THE BID IS 5”    Of course I had no idea what he was talking about, BUT I SOON LEARNED.   I came…

From FB: What is up with our Cook County Board–Tim Evans sues Preckwinkle?!?!

This is absolutely ridiculous.  With filing fees reaching $400 per case and the system being mostly computerized, how is it that the court system needs more money.

I think Evans should be suing Dorothy Brown to fully computerized the court system, put recording devices in every courtroom, provide computers to transcribe and put everything online like Pacer for 8 cents per page.

Pacer must be raking in millions.

The Federal Court system isn’t struggling, so why is Cook County so screwed up?

The key to all of this is getting rid of non tech savvy anyone in the court system and automating everything.

The beverage tax was a disaster.  The bag tax is just as bad.

What they really want (the Mayor and the Cook County President) is a tax on breathing Cook County air, so just go ahead and do that.
