If You Can Fake It Here

I had read about this a while back, but it has now been blown wide open.
The Long Island Rail Road disability pension scam busted Thursday was so breathtakingly huge that calling it a massive fraud scheme is a gross understatement.
This sort of thing is why, when people tell me Chicago is more corrupt than New York, I simply roll my eyes.

A billion bucks worth of bogus bad backs -
funded by some federal tax!

I love a good disability fraud,
but this one leaves me over-awed.

UPDATE: The quotation above was from the NY Daily News, but they have pulled the story from the web, so a commenter graciously provided parallel links from the NY Post - here and the NY Times - here.
