More Pigford

I love it -- Breitbart is on a roll with this one. An excerpt from this post by Gary Hewson -- The Pigford Killings: Double-Murder, Double-Cross, and Decapitation in the Delta. An excerpt:
�Yes, I agreed to it,� Edmond said of having Reed killed. �I know it�s wrong for wanting her dead, but I was p�� off with her because she put the police on me.�

She said Collins and Walker killed Reed to prevent Reed from testifying against Edmond and her sister. The women were accused of embezzling Reed�s $50,000 black farmers� settlement check in 2001.

But Edmond said both she and her sister and Reed were part of a scam to defraud the federal government of the money from a settlement between black farmers and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Edmond said for every person she brought into the scam, she was scheduled to receive $2,000. The person getting the check would get $16,000, and the rest of the money would be split among others. She brought Reed into the scam, she said.
And as usual with any Breitbart post, links to source materials so you can check it out for yourself... Posted by DaveH at December 8, 2010 8:38 PM
