Dear
Ms. Mathews:
On
10-16-09,
1
metwithyou to see why theTravis County District Attorney
office
was
reluctant
to prosecute the
Texas
Workforce Commission for their fraud, malfeasance,
alteration,
concealment
and
tampering
of my
unemployment records.
We
previously
established
that they wouldnot beprosecutedforwithholding those records
from
me.A July
17,
2009 press release (see attachment #1)
from
the DA's
office
stated,
'Tampering
with a governmental record is a state jail
felony
punishable by
180
days totwo years
in
state jail
and a fine of up to
$10,000."
Ms.
Mathews
as I
said
in the
meeting,
"If tampering with government records is good enough for (StateRepresentative) Kino Flores,
it is
good enough
for
TWC." That
press
release also shows
that
you are the prosecutor and contact person for the Flores case.
I
should not be asked to settle for less. TWC not only interfered with my claim. Theytamperedwithmyrecords. WhenTWCbrought alleged
fraud
byunemploymentrecipients
to the
DA's
office
for
prosecution,
it was
done (see
attachment
#2).There should not be the appearance of unequal justice in this county and the appearancethatit is based on who you are. Please let justice flow both ways in this county.
Other Business
You
wanted
a
phone number
to
call
TWC
about
my
case?
Call Laura Bradshaw
at
(512)463-2796. Bradshaw is the supervisor for Hearing
Officers
Larry Bires
(2001),
JamiJohn
(01/2009)
and Mark McBryde. These hearing
officers
concealed and altered thegovernment record
of my
unemployment
case.
Sincerely,
,-
Sara Black

AUSTIN
-
Efforts
by theTexas
Workforce Commission (TWC)
led to
more than $460,000
in
restitution orders
for
the
first
half of 2009. The orders resulted from statewide criminal prosecutions for Unemployment Insurance(UI) fraud.
These
funds will
be returned to the Unemployment Compensation Trust Fund from which TWCpays
UI
benefits
to
those
who
lose
their
jobs
through
no
fault
of
their own.
TWC investigates and
refers
cases.to
local district
attorney
offices
in
which unemployment insurance benefitsare obtained through
fraud
or deception.
TWC's
efforts have resulted in nearly $4
million
returned to the
state's
trust
fund
during the three-year period from 2006 to 2008.
In
the Austin area, three
individuals
have been prosecuted for UI
fraud
and ordered to pay
$15,698
in restitution
for fraudulent
UIclaims this
year.I
nadditiontorestitution, individualswhocommitUI

"Everyone
pays
the
price when people choose
to
cheat
the
system,"
said
TWC
Chairman
Tom
Pauken.
"These
cases
demonstrate
the
results
of agencywide
systems implemented
to
detect
and
prevent
fraud."
TWC's
Regulatory Integrity Division
is
charged with detecting
and
preventing fraud,
waste
and
abuse.
The
division
enforces
all
regulatory
statutes
within
the
jurisdiction
of the
agency,
including Tax, Workforce,
Trade
Act,
Skills
Development,
Self-Sufficiency,
Child
Care
and all
other programs administered
by
TWC.
Prevention,
detection, and elimination of
fraud,
waste and abuse in the UI program are top priorities, ensuringthat
funds
are available exclusively to those who meet the
eligibility
requirements.
TWC
administers
UI
benefits
to
workers
who
become unemployed through
no
fault
of
their
own and are
actively seeking work.
TWC
regularly cross matches
UI
claims with employer
wage
reports
and
other databasesto detect possible UI
fraud.
If TWC discovers that claimants have received UI benefits through
fraudulent
applications,
the
agency
seeks
immediate reimbursement
of
overpayments. Examples
of UI
fraud
include giving
false
information and
failure
to report self-employment or other earnings while receiving UI benefits.
To
report suspected
UI
fraud,
call
the TWC
Fraud
and
Program Abuse
hot
line
at
(800) 252-3642.
