Penis pumps for illegal aliens... it's now apparently essential medicine

And thus something you and I should be funding with our tax dollars:

A Minnesota town is outraged over reports that an illegal immigrant was implanted with a penis pump - paid for by taxpayers.Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said the expense to taxpayers was more than $50,000.

"It's shocking," he told FOX News Radio. "It's certainly disturbing as well. You know it's not going to set well with the public at large."

Yet it will set well with the public looking to get larger... but I digress:

Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto wants to know how an illegal immigrant was able to obtain tens of thousands of dollars in medical assistance.

"There's no logical argument for why that should have been approved," Ciliberto told the Shakopee News. "I don't know how many illegal aliens are getting emergency medical assistance for such a procedure."

Ciliberto told county commissioners the cost of taking care of illegal immigrants in their community is skyrocketing.

"It should be obvious when Scott County goes from seven bookings in 2006 to 90 bookings in 2009 - that Arizona's problem is Minnesota's problem, too," he told the newspaper.

According to published numbers, the county spent more than $800,000 housing inmates with immigration holds - and that doesn't include medical coverage.

"We have no control over the southern border," he said. "We don't know who is coming in and what country they're coming from."

Regardless, local officials said they are required by federal and state laws to provide welfare to illegals - from court costs to health care - including a penis pump.

With props... so to speak... to Don Surber, who gives advice to those seeking penile assistance:

Drive to Shakopee, Minnesota, and run a stop sign. When the police pull you over and ask for your driver's license, say you are an illegal alien. The officer will arrest you and while in jail you get a penis pump.

This ought to be bringing them across the border in droves.

Who or what is "reporting" that tidbit of info? The police chief doesn't say does he? How would a police chief know? Why should a police chief know? Does he review hospital medical bills in his spare time?

Please read the link which doesn't even pretend this is anything more than manufactured outrage over rumors and/or lies.

They get boners, we get boned.

$50k. That'd pay a quarter of our mortgage off completely. It's the better part of a year's pay for me. And it goes so an illegal can play rump ranger in prison?

Does that come under fraud, waste and abuse, or what?

One Falls, Another Stands Up

Wish I could say that has something directly to do with Rick's article, but in fact my comment is a (potential) thread hijack. I apologize in advance to Rick and the rest of the community.

I've noticed in the past, and just again now, that when one of our Lunatic-Left-Liberals meets Thor's Hammer that in short order either a new commenter shows up to take their place, or one of the second-tier trolls will step up their game. This morning Adrian, a dedicated nonsensical drive-by distractor has made an attempt at Lee Ward's style of comment - "it's a lie, and your all kool-aid drinking whackos."

So, one falls and another stands up. I have no explanation. But it strikes me as odd.

Imhotep:

As a provider of "penis pump" surgical services, I can tell you that I am shocked and amazed that this procedure was approved. Mostly because it is NOT a Medicare/Medicaid approved (paid for) procedure, unless it can be proven that it is directly related to a disability. It's darn near impossible to get a legal citizen this procedure paid for by Medicare/Medicaid or private insurance, so I would be curious as to the accuracy of this report.

It should be obvious to all... it's reported by a Fox News affiliate.

That's why isn't browne, you and many others are like Pavlov's Dogs the mention or sight of anything related to Fox, including the woodsy furry type, sends you nitwits into a tizzy fit.

Where are Jay Tea and Drummand? I expect they will want to jump right on this obvious infringement of the privacy rights of our formally limp criminal alien. First Utah and now Minnesota... Well, maybe there is hope. Once we fix the flaccid ones, perhaps they can get matched up with the wannabe welfare mothers. Win, win!
