New York's Non-Profit Fat Cats Fatten On Medicaid And Contribute To Cuomo

"The noble NY Non-Profit Fat Cat takes his fair share first, then shares the rest with the needy politicians and the deserving poor." 
Non-Profit Fat Cat

    Not only NY State itself, but also, NY "non-profits" benefit from NY State's corruption in Medicaid as was reported to the US Congress from this site.   Cuomo followed the money and moved his "pay for protection and/or favorable treatment plan" from his attorney general's office to his governorship.  Attorney General Cuomo decried "pay to play cash"  in the Comptroller's office, while simultaneously Cuomo pocketed the "cleanly laundered" cash from the lawyers of litigants with pending court actions against the State of New York.

   The New York Times ran a series of articles on abuses at non-profits and handsome executive compensation.   Governor Cuomo responded with his latest "pay for protection" initiative when, "Cuomo recently created a task force of high-level aides to investigate high salaries at nonprofits that receive state funding."  Supposedly, these highly paid Cuomo hacks will operate independently of Cuomo fund raising.   But the initiative has a stench to it, said Susan Lerner, executive director of Common Cause/New York. "This is just another way in which having to raise large amounts of money privately can make things uncomfortable after the election is actually won."    While non-profits don't make any profits distributed to owners as dividends, they do make profitable income sources for their executives.   Within NY State's Medicaid system, the lax enforcement for criminal frauds committed by NY State employees and Non-profit executives encourages corruption.   This led to a call for a special prosecutor at the federal level for fraud which has been rampant since 1996 in NY State Medicaid.

    The Daily News connected the dots of "giving to Cuomo," Medicaid and getting large compensation with these reports,
"1. George McDonald and two family members, who gave Cuomo a combined $39,500... McDonald is president of The Doe Fund,...The Doe Fund... has won nearly $4 million in state grants on top of another $790,000 from 26 legislative grants....The Doe Fund's latest IRS 990 form states 20 individuals each make more than $100,000 in total compensation, with the top 14 employees paid a combined $2.8 million in 2009....McDonald as president had a total compensation package of $507,156... His wife, Harriet Karr-McDonald ... received $226,503...his son, John McDonald ... was paid $215,542...[also], George McDonald leases office space to the Doe Fund.
2.- Dr. Steven Safyeer, president and CEO of Montefiore Medical Center. Safyeer earned $1.97 million in compensation. He donated $16,000 to Cuomo.
3. Robert Conaty, executive vice president for operations at Montefiore Medical Center. His compensation totaled $1.45 million. He donated $20,000 to Cuomo.
4. Dr. Herbert Pardes, CEO of New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Pardes' compensation was $2.8 million. He donated $12,000 to Cuomo.
5. David Rich, executive vice president for the Greater New York Hospital Association. Rich earned $1.1 million in total compensation He has donated $67,000 to Cuomo."

       Non-profit feeding at the government trough has been a profitable family business for the Cuomos.   "The ...boss of a nonprofit group founded by Gov. Cuomo, ...Help USA's President and CEO Laurence Belinsky recently gave up his $500,000 annual salary to pursue private housing development...Cuomo founded the outfit in 1986. It provides services to the homeless and receives city, state and federal funding [keeping the business within the Cuomo public/private family].   Cuomo reportedly pocketed $60,000 a year when he was at the helm...Cuomo's sister, Maria Cuomo Cole, is the chairwoman of Help USA.  Belinsky, is said to be married to one of Cuomo's cousins."

   Will the Cuomo family non-profit(s) be examined for excess compensation, nepotism and Medicaid fraud, too?
