Bilkemor LLC and the Complete Dispect of DC Taxpayer Money

Bilkemor is the audacious name that a DC employee, Harriette Walters, created for a sham corporation, one of many she created to steal more than $30 million from DC taxpayers.

It was so easy. She would submit false refunds and the only other check in this system, Diane Gustus, was also part of the fraud so she would sign off and get paid.

The only silver lining in this scandal is that DC Council members have been inundatated with outrage and hopefully will not be in the mood to pass the type of tax increase that Maryland is facing.

Reason's Radley Balko commented on the issue here.
