Turns out Hushpuppi and his goons diverted $35M meant for Covid19 Ventilators. Imagine how many lives this will affect.
See eh, It takes a certain level of wickedness to do fraud

Quite pleased that they've caught Hushpuppi tbh. With all the lavish living and the jokes and the way people hail his lifestyle and what not, it's easy to forget that he's a criminal. Very very good
