Here's the scandal...one level of government suing another level of government to get $500K of our money and paying an out of town lawyer $250K to make it happen.
Jefferson County has disputed Medicaid reimbursement from the State and an attorney who "understands the process" was brought in to be the rain maker. A Google search shows she has been involved in numerous Medicaid disputes around the state, so I guess she does know the process and is the go-to person on these cases.
She made it rain, for herself. Local officials say the state may pick up her tab as well. As if the State is not funded by tax dollars as well.
