NY spent $69M on ventilators that never arrived

As per a report by Buzzfeed News, NY state paid more than $69 million for 1,450 ventilators that they never received. This comes after the state enlisted the help of a California man who responded to one of President Trump’s tweets. An engineer named Oren-Pines tweeted, ’We can supply ICU Ventilators, invasive and noninvasive. Have someone call me URGENT’. Officials say they recouped some money.

This really just makes Cuomo look like the incompetent Governor he is... How do you spend nearly $70M on ventilators from a person you found ON TWITTER... It's almost like NY Health didn't research at all. What a mess

Hope the guy gets indicted for fraud and serves time in jail and the length of time he serves depends on how much money was recovered, that will give him the incentive to return the remainder of the money he’s probably stashed in an off shore account. Another criminal grifter known to Trump.

Why do they make the stories so complicated with needless information. Just say that "stupid person in New York got scammed out of $69 milion for ventilators responding to a tweet"

As usual the trumpers here in the comments jump to conclusion, “The guy was recommended to us by the White House coronavirus task force because they were doing business with him, as well,” the official said. “I think everyone was genuinely trying to help each other out and get supplies.” There’s a little orange on your noses y’all...

Funny, Cuomo, and New York have never taken anything said by Trump or his people at face value. And yet, all of the sudden they're dropping $70 million On Trumps word without checking it out???

Anything connected to this swampy trump administration is shady. Trump's investments in chloroquine and his subsequent pushing of this drug, awarding contracts to make PPE to friends, e.t.c. smh. America needs a revolution. A bunch of criminals running this administration

How does one scam a state government out of millions so easy. How is it they are "scrambling" to get their money back. Sounds stinky to me.
