State investigators say employees from three local DMV offices took bribes and gave out licenses to scam people and handicapped elderly drivers with vision problems.
Administrative leave with pay: We haven’t found what happened in this May 2010 case.
But in a different 2005 case, the DMV criminals were in fact suspended WITH pay. “DMV, which has suspended the four employees with pay, has increased its internal security procedures to prevent future scams”…
OAKLAND / DMV workers charged in ID fraud, Aug 5, 2005 ******
An employee of the Fullerton office of the California Department of Motor Vehicles was among four arrested Thursday in a title-washing scheme, department officials said.
Angelina Nanette James, 42, who worked at the DMV’s Fullerton field office, was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail, as were three employees of the DMV’s Los Angeles/Hope Street office, the DMV said in a news release. The others are Taneika Mashay Lathan, 22; Shavon Renae Shorter, 25; and Kimberly Nicole Sadler, 30, the release said.
The title-washing scheme involved luxury vehicles such as Mercedes-Benzes and Cadillac Escalades, said Greg Huber, a DMV internal affairs commander. People would buy vehicles using auto loans. Then, with the help of the four DMV employees, they would get a fraudulent title in which the lien-holding bank was removed, Huber said. The people would then take out new loans against the vehicles and pocket the money, he said.
In one case, a vehicle was used as collateral for loans six times before the banks caught on, Huber said. Approximately 10 people not employed by the DMV where arrested by the California Highway Patrol in connection with the scheme, he said.
The four DMV employees are being charged with conspiracy, grand theft, illegal computer access, bribery and use of false documents to conceal resident status, the DMV said.
DMV is one of the guards against illegal immigration and public safety. If the charges are true, these people have betrayed the trust in the worst ways.
Law must be applied here, to its fullest extent and its heaviest punishment.
Just one more aspect of illegal immigration corrupting America – a once-great country before BHO destroyed it.
What is the point of the DMV again?
The Department of Mexican Voters?
