Viagra Sex Offenders

California says at least 137 sex offenders got taxpayer help buying Viagra

California is among the latest states to close a loophole allowing taxpayer health-service dollars to be used to buy Viagra for convicted sex offenders.

The state attorney general says at least 137 registered sex offenders were among the nearly six-thousand men supplied with Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs last year. An audit says California's Medicaid agency paid out more than two and a-half  million dollars on Viagra for all the men, including the offenders.

What turned out to be a nationwide problem was uncovered by a New York state audit that showed sex offenders were getting government-reimbursed Viagra as recently as March.
