Integrity Florida Calling for Probe of State CFO Investigation of Dental Practice Arrests

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Integrity Florida (IF) says an outside agency is needed to probe the CFO investigation of dental practice arrest attempts.

Claims have been made that the CFO’s office supported a prosecution coinciding with a civil case involving campaign donors. 

Following the news reports from publications including Florida Daily, Florida Bulldog, Mike Deeson Reporting, and Eye on Jacksonville, Integrity Florida sent out a press release stating that significant questions have been raised about a suspicious and apparently tarnished investigation launched by Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis

“His law enforcement offices have made arrests and allegations of Medicaid fraud – in the dental practice offices of adversaries of major recent donors to Patronis’ PAC, Treasure Florida,” notes the press release.

“This has all led to charges being dropped and prosecutors taking a pass on pursuing cases further, though there remain ongoing efforts to discredit people’s reputations. Integrity Florida urges action by independent professionals outside of the Department of Financial Services – appointed by Attorney General Ashley Moody or Governor Ron DeSantis – to find the facts and truth,” said Integrity Florida. 

Both sides of this story have been and will continue to be covered by Florida Daily.

    Anyone want to bet that overdue consequences and accountability for such gross misuse of a public office are just around the corner? This is why people don’t trust government — because of politicians who protect special interests — but not the public interest. Justice must be coming!

    Astonishingly the The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) is responsible for the administration of the Florida Medicaid program, licensure and regulation of Florida’s health facilities and for providing information to Floridians about the quality of care they receive has all but shut down the practice as they continue this “investigation” allowing the past owners to grow their new practice locations off the back of those they have made the accusations against. I am completely and utterly disgusted by the lack of any integrity this state has in protecting innocent victims of political power plays.

    Unfortunately, justice is not swift. By the time action is taken to restore the practice and the victims lives are repaired, it will be too late. How long can people hang on waiting for justice to be served without any income? Patronis’ cronies political ploy is working. Good job government bureaucrats! Governor DeSantis you had better put some resources into fixing this debacle or your political career will suffer. I guarantee I will not let the media forget this.
