The ringleaders would then demand thousands of dollars in kickbacks for each fake claim, prosecutors allege.The suspects are accused of fabricating letters from health care providers about using the medical equipment, fabricating prescriptions that were purportedly signed by healthcare providers and creating fake invoices from medical equipment companies in an effort to prove the equipment was purchased, according to court documents. In reality, they had never purchased or received the medical equipment, prosecutors said.After the phony claims were submitted, the former players would receive reimbursement checks and pay a kickback to the ringleaders and recruiters, the indictments charge.Prosecutors moved to bring charges, in part because the scheme put the health care plan’s tax exempt status at risk, which could’ve forced other former players using the plan legitimately to pay more, Benczkowski said.Four of the suspects, McCune, Rogers, John Eubanks and Ceandris Brown, were arrested Thursday morning by the FBI. They are: James Butler, Fredrick Bennett, Etric Pruitt, Tamarick Vanover, Portis and Buckhalter.The Justice Department has also filed court papers in Kentucky noting that it plans to file charges against two other players as well, including Joe Horn, a four time Pro Bowl wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints, and Donald “Reche” Caldwell.The investigation was continuing, but because the plan involves only former players prosecutors do not expect any current NFL players to face charges, Benczkowski said.Portis’ lawyer, Mark Dycio, said his client “had no knowledge that his participation in what he believed to be an NFL sanctioned medical reimbursement insurance program was illegal.””He is completely taken aback by the indictment and will move forward with the process of clearing his good name and those of his fellow NFL alumni,” Dycio said..

Anyway, for want of a degree in art history, i continue to be bewitched by the fruits materialised by Jean Baptiste Simon Chardin, an 18th century French painter; my favourite. I don’t know why his apples have an incantatory effect on me. Maybe they recall my first five star hotel check in, when i saw a bunch of the cellophaned crop on the side table amid upholstered pomp..
Fortunately, Graeber and some friends began talking with other “horizontals” Wobblies, veterans of the Greek and Spanish protests, etc. who, like him, had been hoping for something on the libertarian model of the Spanish indignados’ protest. They quickly coalesced into a General Assembly and bypassed the power grab of Workers’ World et al..
