Biden’s Labor Nominee has Fraudulent Past

Biden’s nominee to be number two in command at the Department of Labor apparently oversaw a broken and fraudulent unemployment system.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

As California’s secretary of labor, Julie Su oversaw an unemployment website plagued by glitches and improper payments. The website repeatedly crashed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and was down as recently as this month. These systemic failures pose a challenge for Su, whom Biden has nominated to serve as deputy labor secretary.

Su has faced bipartisan pushback during her confirmation hearings, with moderate Democratic senators, including Joe Manchin (W. Va.), under pressure to join Republicans in opposing Su’s nomination. The Senate recently confirmed former Boston mayor Marty Walsh as secretary of labor with significant bipartisan support.

California’s unemployment site had more than 1 million unprocessed claims in March. The California Employment Development Department (EDD), which manages the unemployment claim process, did not respond to a request for comment on the backlog or on Su’s handling of the problems with the unemployment system. The department did acknowledge “an intermittent issue” with the site after multiple reports of crashing.

In January, California officials said that more than $11 billion of unemployment benefits paid during the coronavirus pandemic were fraudulent, with another $19 billion still under investigation by state officials. In addition to these payments, Su oversaw the fraudulent payments of nearly $1 billion to prison inmates in what the Sacramento County district attorney described as “one of the biggest frauds of taxpayer dollars in California history.” The fraud involved the filing of more than 35,000 unemployment claims under the names of California prison inmates that were paid out between March and August of 2020.

California is a model the country should work to not follow, but apparently, Biden wants to follow in its footsteps.

Typical, Biden is rehashing all the Obama people and they, like Obama, were all tainted. Just more of the same old, same old. Unfortunately, it’s getting really old, fast. They.ve all been there and know how to skim that.

I feel a bit bad about pointing it out to ya’, mojo, but just who do you think voted Biden and Obama into office? Vandals didn’t go through the neighborhood randomly sticking those “We Believe…” signs in unsuspecting homeowners’ yards. These people not only don’t mind having their noses rubbed in it, they positively love the experience. It’s past the point where we can save the nation. We need to consider whether we might still save ourselves.

Who cares? Same question, friend. And by the way, you’re forgetting that Poor Old Joe stole the election. If the “system” is incapable of punishing him, The People are not.

I guess if you ACTUALLY believe he got the statistically impossible amount of votes he got then you might believe that.

Oh, sure, Julie Su is incompetent and crooked, but… but look how many DIVERSITY BOXES she checks! That’s what counts! Ask CIGNA or CITI-Bank – that’s how they hire now, too. Ditto many universities. We have moved from a meritocracy to a system wherein only your “tribe” matters and intersectionality is key. The most desirable hire is not the best person for the job, the person who can do it better than anyone else – no, it’s a gay, gender-fluid/mid-transition midget person of color who iss a deaf, mute, blind, and crippled Muslim with celiac disease, lactose intolerance, and pseudofolliculitis barbae – oh, and Tourette’s sufferer. It helps if one has a criminal record, as well. SO, let’s all put aside our prejudices, swallow our doubts, and give a great big friendly welcome to Julie Su! I’m sure she will come to exemplify the Biden Administration.

She sounds perfect! Incompetent, racially “diverse”, and a quasi-criminal. Poor Old Joe sure can pick ’em.

WE are in SO much trouble right now. You can’t even BLAME Biden for ANY of it because he’s just signing what people that pull his strings put in front of him. You can blame him for being the trash that he is but he isn’t even aware of what he’s doing at this point. In his mind he’s still cornering geeks with his buddy Corn Pop behind the gym and beating them up for their lunch money.
