District attorneys from Sacramento, El Dorado, Kern and San Mateo counties announce widespread EDD fraud
Tens of thousands of California jail and prison inmates, including serial killers, rapists, child molesters and murderers on death row, are accused of scamming California's Employment Development Department out of COVID-19-related unemployment assistance, district attorneys announced at a news conference Tuesday. Estimates of the fraud could near $1 billion.
El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson said he believes the largest taxpayer fraud in California history is due to “dysfunctionality” within the EDD, including a series of resignations, retirements and “lack of responsibility."

Fifty-eight county jails account for an additional hundreds of millions in EDD losses.
“It has been said that there is no honor among thieves, and there is no better example of this then the massive EDD fraud that is occurring within our jails, in our prisons here in California,” Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said.

They are just as worthless as anyone incarcerated in our prisons and do even less work.
SILENCE, PEASANT! YOU HAD BETTER LEARN YOUR PLACE!
I am not a pheasant!
If I was like a bird, I’d like to think I’d resemble something proud and noble.....
Like a grouse.
That was a pleasant response!
I AM NOT A PHEASANT!
You take that back before I fly over there and give you a good wing whapping!
OK, OK, my apologies! For heaven’s sake, I don’t want a wing whapping...
