Scavo's "not real criminals" scams totalled millions. He stole from taxpayers and taxes have gone up because of it. How much Scavo scam money went into your pockets?

If a crook is arrested after stealing $200 of your cash we are 100% sure you would tell the prosecutor to forget about it and go after "real criminals".
