BONER CANDIDATE #1: A BUNCH OF DO NOTHING THERAPISTS

Eight city psychotherapists bilked taxpayers for more than $600,000 in sessions with developmentally-delayed kids that they never performed — forging parents’ signatures to get paid while they slacked off and even took vacations, authorities said Thursday. The accused staffers, which include two city Department of Education employees, were supposed to be treating children, ranging from babies to 5-year-olds, under initiatives like the state’s Early Intervention Program (EIP). Instead, they fudged the signatures of the parents of roughly 200 vulnerable kids on invoices for treatment they never provided, filed the claims for taxpayer-funded payment with Medicaid and the state health department, and blew off their young patients, prosecutors alleged Thursday in Brooklyn federal court. One defendant, Lyubov Beylina, billed for 51 EIP therapy sessions between June 28 and July 5, 2016 — the same stretch when a Facebook photo shows her lounging on a beach in the Dominican Republic, decked out in a hot-pink bikini and clutching an iguana, officials said. “Rather than provide honest services, they chose to line their own pockets at the expense of taxpayers and the developmentally-delayed children and their families for whom these funds were targeted,” said William Sweeney, Assistant Director-in-Charge for the FBI, which took part in the investigation.

BONER CANDIDATE #2: I DON’T THINK THE JUDGE WOULD TRY TO TAP THAT.

A North Carolina Republican leader used a fake photo to mock the physical appearance of Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Lanny Lancaster, GOP chairman for Cabarrus County, this week shared an image on Facebook that he purported to be a teenage Ford, suggesting she was not attractive enough to be a sexual assault victim. Ford, a California psychology professor, told the Senate Judiciary Committee last week that Kavanaugh held her down on a bed, covered her mouth, and attempted to forcibly remove her clothing when the two were in the high school.  “This is the alleged sexual assault victim. Wow,” Lancaster wrote in his post with the picture of a young woman in braces wearing large glasses, according to the News & Observer. The photo isn’t Ford. It’s actually a meme that has circulated the internet since at least 2012. When contacted by the News & Observer, Lancaster was unapologetic and attacked the media. “I didn’t say anything,” Lancaster said. “I just said this is her picture. Basically, the media is distorting the facts on this lady. Everything she’s said is made up. She has no evidence whatsoever. I support that theory.” Then he launched into a further slam on Ford’s physical appearance.
