Attkisson: When you hear Alicia Dabney's story, what's your take on her case?
McCray: The management infrastructure of USDA is such that it encourages this kind of frat boy, this atmosphere.
A manager there in the 1990s, he exposed fraud worth millions of tax dollars in a program for poor communities.
"Forged checks, some really outrageous stuff that we wound up going to the OIG, the Inspector General. We even notified the President's initiative on race trying to get 'em some help," he said.

Attkisson: What was the outcome of your complaints?
McCray: My complaints have never been processed to completion.
Attkisson: From 1990s?
McCray: From 1990s. I had testimony, corroboration, (and) documentation. I had a case that shouldn't have taken 20 minutes that has taken 20 years.
