FBI looking to add Monsey Jews to the Federal Daf Yoimi Program in Prison

So far there haven't been any arrests, but one thing is certain, the FBI are not looking for people who secretly look at the internet, or who have IPhones! ..

According to our sources they are also not looking for women that wear spitzlach but don't shave their heads or for ladies that don't wear bulletproof stockings!

Din has learned that they are looking for Mosdois that said that they will actually provide computers to the students but instead pocketed the funds!

So according to our sources, it's not ok to have the students learn on computers, but it's ok to take the funds!

Federal agents have been seen roaming the streets of Monsey and visiting several locations around town today, Wednesday.

The raids are part of an investigation into whether local Yeshivas misused the federal government’s E-Rate program intended for the purchase of educational telecommunications technology.
The FBI investigators issued search warrants today before seizing boxes of evidence that could help them find out if the targeted schools used the federal technology funds for their intended purpose or pocketed millions of dollars earmarked for technology education.

According authorities, more than 300 agents and officers were involved in today’s operation in Monsey.

In a statement, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said: “Today, the FBI, working with our office, conducted searches in connection with an ongoing fraud investigation. If and when charges are filed, they will eventually become public. This remains an ongoing matter, and we are unable to provide any additional information at this time.”

Wednesday’s raids come as state and federal prosecutors continue jointly investigating potential governmental corruption in Ramapo and Clarkstown. A report last week by News12 forcasted a “far-reaching corruption probe” this week in Rockland County, reportedly zeroing in on officials in Ramapo, Clarkstown and at the county government level.
So far, no arrests were made during the raids, law enforcement sources said.

The Manhattan-based Jewish Week and The Jewish Daily Forward published reports questioning the high percentage of E-Rate dollars in New York state going to Hasidic and other Orthodox schools and libraries, noting many of the schools prohibited student access to the Internet.
The Jewish Week's first article outlined how the religious schools in Rockland and New York City obtained the federal money, while focusing on the vendors and then the investigation that led one to return $900,000.
In an 2013 interview with The Journal News, Peretz Klein, owner of Hashomer Alarm Systems in Spring Valley, which lists an address on its website of 29 Robert Pitt Drive in Monsey, credited the E-Rate program with making it possible for many needy yeshivas and other Orthodox Jewish schools to install computers and modern technology for their students.
"The government created this program to get technology in the schools," he said. "It's a very big help for many schools. We service the schools, do all we can to help them."
Klein's 33-year-old company brought in millions in E-Rate grants to install infrastructure — servers, extensive wiring and more — at private schools in Rockland County and Brooklyn. His company is one of many across the country that focus their business on the long-controversial E-Rate program, created under the federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 to help schools and libraries in low-income communities keep up in the digital age.

Not connected to this but Zev Brenner has been charged with a Federal crime.

It is very suspicious he just pleaded guilty now but is not going to prison because not only was he working with Moses Stern but there are indications he was possibly also a moyser working undercover for the Feds. They were not just going after politicians. There was at least one frumma also who Stern tried to get him on tape. Brenner made the shidduch to get them together.

We all remember Mizrachi making an idiot of himself on Brenner's show but he was in good company.
