Commissioner, Mom Accused of Fraud

St. John's County

Former employees of a medical clinic accuse the St. Johns County Commissioner and his mother of improperly billing for nearly 40 Medicaid patients, illegally storing controlled substances and forging prescriptions, the Florida Times-Union reports. 

The accusations against Bill McClure and Paula Stowell are detailed in a warrant served more than two months ago. As the Times-Union reports, no charges have been filed; the clinics are still open, and McClure continues to serve as a commissioner.
