RALEIGH, N.C. -- A company owned by the family of a candidate for the North Carolina Senate who has made fighting government corruption a cornerstone of his campaign has been ordered to repay the state Medicaid office $4.2 million.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that Frankie Bordeaux and his wife singed a settlement with the state in February to repay money given to Cambridge Behavioral Health Services in Greenville.
The investigation into the company found hundreds of cases of incomplete patient records, several possible fraud cases and unqualified staff delivering care.
Frankie Bordeaux is a Democrat challenging incumbent Sen. Clark Jenkins in a primary in the district covering Edgecombe, Martin and Pitt counties.
Bordeaux says the allegations have nothing to do with his campaign.
