O'Keefe Medicaid Sting Hits NYC, South Carolina

The videos are just up, right now. I haven't watched them yet, but O'Keefe promised hilarity to come and tipster Igor says they're hilarious.


In the latest video, filmed in several Medicaid offices in New York City, an undercover reporter, who identifies himself as “Mario” seeks to apply for Medicaid for himself and his pregnant girlfriend, “Peach.”

When Mario is asked about his income, he intimates that he was a plumber, but does not earn a steady living and his source of income may not be legal, specifically the sale of “Mushrooms.” When the conversation turns to his income, the Medicaid worker says, “I don’t want to know nothing. I know you’re trying to survive, but you can’t tell me these things, okay?” Mario presses with, “If they come, I’m going to get arrested.” The Medicaid case worker also tells Mario to obtain a letter from a legitimate company saying that he is employed.

Funny: I didn't get it until I heard the Mario Brothers theme, but he claims he's named Mario, is an unemployed plumber, has a girlfriend named Peach, and deals in illegal mushrooms.

And of course he's looking for Magic Coins and Secret Passages.

Note: I took my gay marriage post down because I'd like it to have time to breathe but I have to put up breaking news in favor of it. I'll put the gay marriage post up later.
