Doctor charged in scheme to allow people to bypass US citizenship test

This story just makes me sick.

From the Chicago Tribune:
A Chicago doctor was named Friday in a federal indictment accusing her of diagnosing patients with physical or mental conditions to bypass parts of the testing required for U.S. citizenship.

Jasminka Kostic, 59, and a member of her staff, Nikki Pozdol, 47, were both charged with knowingly making false statements in a document submitted to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

According to court documents, both women falsely stated in documents that an applicant was unable to read, write or speak English to answer questions regarding U.S. history and civics, even in their own language.
Presumbably these people, once they have US citizenship, are able to vote.
