***Virginia woman admits $7.2 million child-credit tax fraud.
More than a year after Watchdog reported the IRS sent thousands refunds to the tiny town of Parksley, Va., a woman has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and mail fraud.
Linda Avila admitted to obtaining more than $7.2 million in refunds by exploiting the federal government’s child tax credit program.
Avila filed more than 1,700 tax returns with stolen identifications used by illegal immigrants, mainly from Mexico.
The Virginian-Pilot reported that Avila, 50, operated a landscaping and cleaning business in Parksley.
Investigators found copies of refund checks in amounts from $4,000 to more than $7,000. The tax returns frequently cited foreign dependents, which increased the refund amounts.
This is *one* example. Wonder how many cases of this there are in the U.S.?
***Atheist group loses lawsuit to ban Colorado Day of Prayer.
Well, isn't that tolerant of them? Nobody is going to force them to pray, but they don't want YOU to pray, either. Don't believe for a minute the phony "separation of church & state" baloney.
Chief Justice Nancy E. Rice, who wrote the opinion on behalf of the 5-2 majority, said that those bringing the lawsuit failed to show that any harm done by the annual proclamation was “injury sufficient to establish individual standing.”
I like that one.
