Supervisor Antonovich Directs County Officials to Report on Welfare Fraud Efforts

The Chief Executive Office and Department of Public Social Services will report back to the Board in 30 days.

Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich today directed the Los Angeles County Chief Executive Office and the Department of Public Social Services to report on strategies being implemented to address ongoing fraudulent and improper use of county social welfare dollars. 

The county continues to learn of millions of dollars in public welfare dollars being spent in places outside Los Angeles County -- such as Las Vegas, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and New York City -- on questionable expenses including casinos, clubs and tattoo parlors.

“It is vital that public tax dollars for welfare programs are used for their intended purpose,” said Antonovich, whose district includes Monrovia. 

The Chief Executive Office and Department of Public Social Services will report back to the Board in 30 days.
