Emails obtained by the Fox 9 Investigators show the Minnesota government agency was told millions of stolen tax dollars were going overseas and likely a portion of the money was being skimmed by terrorism organizations.
Scott Stillman spent eight years managing the state’s digital forensics lab, meaning he mined data from computers and smart phones.
“I have never seen anything like this level or scope in my 27-year career as an investigator,” he told Fox 9.
When the state started going after daycare centers suspected of fraud, Stillman was directly involved in the investigations.
Some of the businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.
According to Stillman, he alerted a number of people in DHS including the Commissioner’s Chief of Staff with the following message: “Significant amount of these defrauded dollars are being sent overseas to countries and organizations connected to entities known to fund terrorists and terrorism.”
According to public records and government sources, Somali immigrants own most of the daycare centers.
That certainly doesn’t play well with the immigration narrative.
