I was working a federal fraud case back in 1998, and discovered an even larger fraud occurring. I brought it to the attention of DOJ in the western district, and at main justice in DC, along with DCIS, NCIS, & AFOSI. The corporations involved are very powerful, and I'm guessing no one wanted to take them on. After striking out in my official capacity, I looked into filing a Qui Tam lawsuit. I discovered that as a federal employee I wasn't considered a person under the law under the court of appeals for my area of the country. So I gave up.

Fast forward to today. The chief of our technical support branch from 20 years ago has asked me if I'd once again consider filing a Qui Tam lawsuit over the fraud I discovered. So this week, I took a look at public records that if you know what to look for shows evidence of the fraud. Today a back of a napkin computation shows a minimum of $3B in fraud per year for just one out of 4 agencies involved. I provided some data to my tech guy, and his quick computation is $8B per year. As a tax payer I'm disgusted. If I can locate or obtain contractor specific data, or obtain it via a FOIA, I'm going to try a Qui Tam lawsuit since I'm no longer part of a non-person class under the law.

But as blatant as this fraud is, I suspect my efforts will go nowhere. But Karl works tirelessly to expose fraud, and this is one I can hopefully file a legal complaint and maybe stop. I don't know if we can even get a law firm to represent us on a contingent fee basis even. That's in a situation where we are entitled to 20% OF the recovery, which is substantial.
