Donor Who Gave $1 Million to Obama Indicted For Fraud, Manslaughter
A modern-day snake oil salesman who gave $1 million to the Obama campaign and pals around with Nancy Pelosi has been indicted for fraud and manslaughter.
The last time we heard from him, Kareem Ahmed was bragging that “I hang out with governors, U.S. Senators, Nancy Pelosi is a personal friend.” But now…
According to a sealed indictment obtained by: Talking Points Memo, Kareem Ahmed – the Obama donor and: president and CEO of Landmark Medical Management in Ontario – is accused of: developing topical cream formulas “based on the profitability of the ingredients” and then giving doctors who treated workers’ compensation patients illegal financial incentives to prescribe the creams, TPM said.
The 2009-2013: scheme also involved filing false claims with multiple insurance companies, TPM added,: citing the indictment.
I can’t say I’m surprised. Rich people who earned their wealth, like Donald Trump and Mitt Romney, tend to be Republicans; people who got rich via inheritance, lawsuits, or straight-up scamming tend to be Democrats. Just look at the Kennedys, smarmy trial lawyer John Edwards…and this guy. To make matters worse, Ahmed’s snake oil allegedly killed at least one person.
Once again, it’s vacation time at RWN. I’ll be out of town, kicking back and relaxing, for the next few
