In stepping out of the elevator just before 9 am, one was confronted by the throng of people standing in front of court room C-45 in the Orange County Superior Courthouse. This was just last Friday, August 22nd 2014, and Kareem Ahmed stood out like a neon sign as totally recognizable from all his pictures with Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle.
There Obama’s million dollar donor for his 2012 reelection campaign was about to step into his court proceedings along with his 14 other defendant-consorts. This central figure in this 100 million dollar compound pain killer cream scam had cost just that to the California workers’ compensation system together with the loss of claimant Priscilla Lujan’s approximately five-month-old infant.

The continuation of the arraignment took place last Friday morning, August 22, 2014, in Orange County for all 15 defendants involved in the compound medication scam and conspiracy led by Barack Obama’s one-million-dollar donor, Kareem Ahmed.
The Orange County District Attorney’s office revealed in a Press Release that same day that Landmark Medical Management, owned by Kareen Ahmed, and its subsidiaries defrauded over 100 million dollars from insurance carriers, third-party administrators, and self-insured and administered entities by mass producing, distributing, and prescribing an expensive and toxic compound cream medication. The compound cream was a pain medication.
It was at last explained how the Involuntary Manslaughter count in the Indictment came into being. In 2011, a woman employee injured her knee at work while she was pregnant. Andrew Jarminski, M.D. is alleged to have been this female claimant’s assigned workers’ compensation physician. In August of that same year, the claimant gave birth to a healthy male child.
