The US mainstream media regularly disparages "conspiracy theorists" as though all crimes are committed by idividuals. Here is proof positive that if you DON'T believe in conspiracy theories you are inviting victimization by all manner of conspirators.
Three More NYC Contractors Found Guilty in Massive CityTime Scandal to Modernize Payroll System
Three computer consultants were found guilty on Friday of multiple charges for defrauding New York City of millions of dollars in the largest corruption case in city history. Private consultants were found guilty of siphoning tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks from the scandal-ridden $700 million CityTime payroll project. Last year, the project’s main contractor, SAIC, was forced to repay the city $500 million as part of a deferred prosecution agreement. Meanwhile, a top SAIC official is poised to become the next Secretary of the Air Force. The Senate is expected to soon hold a confirmation vote for Deborah Lee James who was in charge of “corporate responsibility” at SAIC at the time of the CityTime scandal. We get an update on the story from Democracy Now! co-host Juan González, who originally broke the story in the New York Daily News.
