New York - Rockland County Executive Takes To Facebook; Says Kolel Money Is "Off The Books" Income And A Scam
Rockland County, NY - Following a decision last week in which a State Administrative Judge ruled that child care payments be reinstated to three families associated with a Kolel in Kaser, Rockland County Executive Ed Day took to Facebook on Sunday, posting that the Kolel money is “off the books income” and a “multi-million dollar scam” which he intends to bust wide open.
The Rockland County Department of Social Services filed an immediate appeal following the ruling, asking that a different judge hear the case.
On Sunday, Ed Day posted to Facebook (http://on.fb.me/1gDdd6Q ) the following message,
“Just so all in this County are crystal clear. The County Department of Social Services is challenging this absurd decision by an administrative judge at my specific direction.
This is off the books “income” at best and this abuse keeps 381 families with an estimated 700 children seeking child care deserving families, mostly in communities of color, from receiving needed aid.
This is a multi-million dollar scam as many of the families — including the three that challenged losing child care subsidy — also receive Medicaid, Food Stamps and heating allowances. Some families have unbelievably been receiving child care for 20 to 30 years, effectively shutting out other families from the aid.
I will leave no stone unturned until this misappropriation of your tax dollars is stopped.”
