Another liberal so worried about the poor, she stole from them: but that is what most liberals aka democrats do:

The director of Colorado’s health exchange has been placed on administrative leave after the state discovered she had been indicted for stealing from a non-profit, the Denver Post reports:

[Christa Ann] McClure, 51, pleaded not guilty Feb. 6 in federal District Court in Montana to eight counts of theft and fraud from a nonprofit housing agency in Billings.

She was indicted Jan. 16 and notified her current Denver employer, the state-sponsored health exchange, on Monday, a few days after the story broke in Montana media, Connect for Health spokesman Ben Davis said in a telephone interview.

Connect for Health performed a criminal background check and checked references before hiring McClure in March, Davis said.

“She was completely clean,” he said. Her position as executive director of Housing Montana of Billings, he said, made her well-qualified for her post as Connect for Health’s director of partner engagement — she was liaison with state and federal partners, such as Medicaid officials. The job pays $130,000 a year.

… McClure, who has not been convicted of any charges, should have informed Connect for Health much earlier of the accusations she was facing, Davis said.

McClure was released pending trial, now scheduled for June. Each of the counts in the indictment against her carry potential penalties of five, 10 or 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

The 12-page indictment alleges that, while serving as executive director of the federally funded Housing Montana, McClure, between 2008 and 2010, paid herself “significant sums” for consulting services, although she was already on the payroll as a full-time employee.

She also made payments to her family and used federal money for personal travel, to pay family bills and to buy consulting services, the indictment alleges.

She also is accused of charging homeowners for a $750 warranty that did not exist, converting a laptop for personal use, inflating the hours she was to be compensated and writing herself a $21,000 check to which she was not entitled.

The indictment did not specify the total amount she allegedly embezzled.

Belgium: Lawmakers vote for children's 'right to die' euthanasia law
It's for terminally ill children who have no hope of cure and who are suffering. It requires consent by all involved and a psychologist's determination that all involved can discern making this kind of decision.
It's one of those things I try not to have an opinion about. No one wants to see their child suffer through a long lingering death that's inevitable.(Not just impaired - mentally or physically - but literally suffering.) But ending your child's life sooner even if to end their suffering is the unthinkable.
Ending a child's suffering does seem like an act of mercy. It's just what it would take to show that kind of mercy. And living with the emotional and spiritual assurance it was the right decision.
Just so very sad. Sorry to leave on such a depressing note.

A Chicago judge has issued a controversial decision to reduce a fine handed down by state health department officials to an Illinois abortion clinic for violations of cleanliness and health codes. The judge reduced the massive $36,000 fine to a mere $77.

Cook County Circuit Judge Alexander White arbitrarily reduced the fine after the Illinois Department of Health (IDPH) conducted a health inspection of the state's abortion providers in 2011. The issuance of the fine was immediately disputed and has been coursing through the courts ever since.

The IDPH cited the clinic for such violations as storing food items in the same freezer that contained containers of fetal tissue, filthy floors, medication dispensing cups filled with crumbs of medication, recovery rooms with rusted walls, and other filthy conditions. The IDPH report also noted that one employee was re-using discarded paper towels on patients.

Worse, the IDPH charged the clinic for failing to perform CPR on a patient who soon died in its care.

Judge White based his reduction of the fine on the claim that the owner of the clinic closed the facilities down and had only $77 left in the company bank account.

However, theclaim that the clinic was shuttered is suspect.

The operator of the cited clinic informed the state that the clinic was closed in November of 2011, but it was soon discovered that only weeks later owner Larisa Rozansky opened a "new" clinic in the same facilities – even using the same website to advertise – without addressing the state's health code violations.

"Essentially, it means everyone above the age of 16 who is not working. The BLS breaks it down even further, and it quickly becomes clear that the vast majority of these people are retired or simply are not interested in working, such as stay-at-home parents."

Are you still using Hillary's statement out of context nitwit? Once again, and I'm sure not for the last time, let's see what she actually said;
"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime."
She wasn't saying that it didn't make any difference that four Americans lost their lives you goddamned liar, she was saying that the motivations behind the killings was irrelevant.
You’re an idiot Carol!
Al Qaeda planned the attack six months before 9/11/2012.
Immediately after Al Qaeda planned the attack, Hillary Clinton began cutting Stevens' security.
After the attack, and after Hillary Clinton watched the videos that proved Obama was lying about some spontaneous demonstration caused by a video that nobody ever saw and didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack, Hillary Cliniton lied to Congress, lied to the entire country, and lied to Ty Woods' father, regurgitating the Obama lie about some video being the cause.

So, why isn't Hillary Clinton in prison for lying to Congress?

And the big question, how did Hillary Clinton know Al Qaeda needed Stevens' security to be eliminated?

Which brings us back to a question you have been running away from for over a year:

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
