Former Top State Official Indicted For Fraud, Bribery


Despite more than a dozen indictments related to fraud in state government contracts and grants, Springfield’s top federal prosecutor says those cases are still the exception, not the rule. 

 

The latest indictment accuses the former chief of staff in the state Department of Public Health of using her position to shake down grant recipients for kickbacks.  Prosecutors say Quinshaunta Golden took in more than $433,000 in kickbacks and bribes, and then tried to obstruct a federal investigation. 

 

But U.S. Attorney James Lewis says Golden and the dozen other defendants represent only a small portion of state grant money… and says far more money is spent properly, in ways that help many people.
