Another reminder of why some people can't have nice things. Intolerance, ignorance, suspicion, cynicism, well... you know the rest.

I kinda wish I had thought of this scam myself.

Of course. They don't mind giving themselves the same kind of socialism they fight tooth and nail to deny their citizens.

I'll bet she's a looker, and just needed time off for clown school or rehab.

Was there a go-fund-me for the kids when they got cancer and needed burying'?

Probably wanted the state agency job, 2.5 kids, a dog, but didn't want to put the time in so she could run for political office.

An investigation by the Inspector General's Office revealed that in March 2021, a co-worker noticed a lower portion of Folsom's stomach coming apart from her body. The co-worker told officials that they believed Folsom was wearing a fake pregnancy stomach.

This lady is likely guilty of what she's charged with but the stomach thing is boggling.
People simply do not know where the stomach is located.
IF YOU DO KNOW then I challenge you to ask the next person you come into contact with to point directly at their stomach and they'll probably be way off.

I asked my boss if I could take my birthday off, and she said no.

My boss is my mom.

To add insult to injury, she told me not to spill the beans about my brother's surprise party, which made it all the more apparent who's the favoriye twin.

And to think, in some other rich countries you get 6 weeks paid leave every year just for working full time.

Let me guess, you get angry when someone mistakenly refers to the vulva as the vagina as well?

//The problem I would have is finding a shade of prosthesis to match
//And the hair, one with enough hair would be hard to find.

It's easier to fake an infected hemorrhoid. It's unlikely anyone will ask to see it, except for maybe the accountants. They're kinda messed up.

It isn't that boggling if you understand that a word can have multiple meanings, or are familiar with the concept of synecdoche.

This co-worker was not referring to a specific internal organ, and approximately every native English speaker would understand that from the context of the comment.

It's not the elected officials of those states who gave that benefit to state employees, it's the state employee unions  that ought for those benefits.

FTA: Folsom also sent pictures of her new baby to various co-workers, but the pictures were inconsistent and the children had varying skin colors, the Inspector General's Office said.

That made me laugh so hard it woke the cat. Cmon, everyone knows that when using google images for your fake baby pictures to send coworkers, you wanna get the skin tones relatively close lol.

//hmm...unless.. lizard person -> chameleon baby.

I am intrigued.

What do most people wrongly point to? their chest? Crotch?

Only through FMLA and you have to have enough PTO banked.

I have to admit, this is one of the better leave scams I've ever seen.

Kind of, sort of. It's 20 sick hours per month for the first 5 years, 22 hours for the next 5, and 24 for all years after 10. You can carry over year to year, but there are caps.

NCSB-Back when I worked for the State in the 90s, Voc Rehab was one of the agencies I administered benefits for. We had a Drug Abuse Counselor who worked in a four-person field office. He was arrested on a felony warrant one day. His BabyMama also worked in the same office (although we didn't know it at the time). She made sure his timesheets were forged and filed on time for the next 20 months. The only way the agency found out was a Department of Corrections Garnishment to recoup some of the costs for his stay.

The fool got the agency for almost $50K.

End NCSB

Here's the paid leave policy for one state agency in the USofA's Georgia. Let's say you have been working for 1 year in this department. The paid time off starts accruing immediately and by the time you get to 1 year, you will have received 16 days + 2 hours of vacation, 16 days + 2 hours of sick leave, and 12 paid holidays. Much of that time is available to accumulate over years. Plus vacation accrues faster for more experienced employees.

That is a statewide policy.
