Is A Fraud A Fraud If It’s A Pandemic Relief Fraud Too Small To Draw A Fraud Probe?

As we’ve seen, the rather hasty way in which the federal government pumped first $3.1 trillion and then a further $1.9 trillion into the pandemic-stricken economy, and the rather slap-dash and hasty way those $5 trillion were distributed, appeared almost designed to encourage hilarious frauds. Like the hedge-fund manager who used the Paycheck Protection Program as a fundraising tool; or all the Lambos and Porsches purchased; or buying airplane hangers to store them in. Happily for us here at Dealbreaker, the Justice Department will be providing more than enough sequels to those to fill these virtual pages for the next decade.
