(KMSP) - A government whistleblower said he warned upper management at the Department of Human Services about massive daycare fraud more than a year ago.

Emails obtained by the Fox 9 Investigators show the Minnesota government agency was told millions of stolen tax dollars were going overseas and likely a portion of the money was being skimmed by terrorism organizations.

Scott Stillman spent eight years managing the state's digital forensics lab, meaning he mined data from computers and smart phones.

Minnesota child day care fraud cash going to terrorists? Let’s unpack this.

Here’s the idea that’s freaking people out: “$100 million in Minnesota taxpayer child day care fraud is going to Islamic terrorists.”

It doesn’t look like all of that is true — but parts of it are.

There’s a lot of smoke — and a lot of fire — around this story, which KMSP-TV broke this week and has sent lawmakers and bureaucrats at the state Capitol into action. And these actions and reactions have been all over the place, ranging from hunkering in echo chambers to demanding answers to pouncing on red political meat to, well, everything in between.

It’s hard to keep track — and easy to get the facts wrong. Let’s try.

Here’s what the reports say: There’s child care fraud going on. It might be $100 million. Some of it might be going to terrorists. There’s $100 million in cash in suitcases leaving MSP. Some of that money heads to the Middle East or East Africa, including Somalia. Some of that money probably gets skimmed by terrorists. The reports cite a combination of sources, ranging from those with names and firsthand knowledge to anonymous sources, whose credibility can’t be judged from outside.

Here’s what the reports do NOT say: “$100 million in Minnesota taxpayer child day care fraud is going to Islamic terrorists.” Although the report does suggest that’s possible, no source involved with the report actually said that.

But that doesn’t mean this isn’t important. So let’s get into it.
