Gov. Malloy Statement on Accusations of an Illegal Kickback Scheme Between a Florida-Based Compound Pharmacy and Connecticut State Employees

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy released the following statement regarding an announcement made this afternoon by Attorney General George Jepsen that the state has initiated a lawsuit alleging violations of the Connecticut False Claims Act orchestrated through a kickback pyramid scheme involving a Florida-based compounding pharmacy and several individuals, including former and current Connecticut state employees:

“These allegations are deeply troubling and completely unacceptable. If proven true, they run afoul of the very core of what it means to be a public servant. Working for the people of Connecticut necessarily means that one’s conduct comports with the highest standard of integrity, honesty, and professionalism. While the investigation remains ongoing into these specific allegations, it is understandably a grave disappointment and distressing when a current or former state employee fails to meet these expectations. We also firmly believe that anyone who is guilty of defrauding the taxpayers must be held fully accountable. To that end, my administration stands ready to fully assist the Attorney General in their investigation and will continue to work to protect against such abuse.”
