Woman who boasted she was the ‘Queen of IRS tax fraud’ on Facebook gets 21 years in prison after stealing $20 million

A psychologist brought in to testify for the  defense argued the Facebook post was a sign of Wilson’s bi-polar disorder, which  made her liable to brag.

Valerie McClain told the court that  ‘adolescent bragging’  in Facebook posts is consistent with manic-phase  behavior. Wilson had bi-polar diagnosed when she was 14.

Wilson’s fraud was discovered during a  two-year investigation called ‘Operation Rain Maker’, named in reference to all  the money raining down on the suspects’ mail boxes, according to ABC News.

The multi-agency investigation included Tampa  Police Department, IRS-Criminal Investigations, the Secret Service, the U.S.  Postal Inspection Service and the Hills­borough County Sheriff’s  Office.
