Eric C. Conn pleaded guilty just months ago to bilking the government out of potentially $550 million in bogus Social Security disability cases.

He had been free on a $1.25 million bond since 2016, and had insisted to a federal judge that he was not a flight risk, even though authorities said he had repeatedly told his employees he had money stashed overseas and would flee to Ecuador or Cuba if he ever ended up legal trouble.

On Saturday, t​​​he FBI said the court has now issued an arrest warrant for Conn.

    The real issue here is that someone got away with committing this level of fraud on a government run agency. Obviously the agency is not being well run.

    How do we manage to put so many idiots in positions as Judges and bureaucrats where they apply so little common sense in the execution of their duties?

    A guy absconds with $550 mil of government money and the judge releases him on $1.25 mil bond (pocket change to him by that time) – and expects him to stick around for a trial?! . . . . . must have been an Obama-appointed federal judge?

      He didn’t abscond with the money, he and a judge buddy worked a system to grant SS disability to people unqualified, He diverted tax payer money to many scammers!

      Is everything about partisan politics to you? Any chance to slam Obama?? Just FYI dickhead, there’s no mention of him being a federal judge. He’s a lawyer from Kentucky, which happens to be a very coal-loving Republican state.

        If you would reread the article – and my comment – you might realize my COMMENT WAS ABOUT THE JUDGE that released the ‘lawyer from Kentucky’ that swindled the taxpayers out of $550 mill.

        The judge was (is?) a federal judge; and, since Trump has not yet appointed many federal judges (if any?) and Obama was in office for the past 8 years, I made the conjecture that he “must have been an Obama-appointed federal judge? That was based on his ‘Progressive’, ‘coddle the wrong-doer’ approach to ‘justice’.

        Do you have any ‘facts’ that any of that is incorrect? or, that I’m a ‘dickhead’ only engaging in ‘partisan politics’? If you have some additional information, I’d be happy to reconsider my statements! . . . . Until then . . . . ??

    He’s probably laid up on orgy island with Billy-Bob Clinton, with a 12 year old on one knee and a stiff drink on the other, telling Billy, you were right, it is easy!

    How appropriate his name – Conn – is for a con artist. One wonders if the surname warped his young life and headed him in the direction of crime. And how many young men named Sargent opted for a military career. New parents need to consider the ramifications of the tags they stick on their babies. Sorry for airing the pet peeve, which results from the name I got stuck with.

      He could equally have related to CONNvention and gotten into comics, tv memorbilia, sci fi works….
