The Washington Post reported that personal information was stolen from more than 228,000 Medicaid patients in South Carolina. Anthony Keck, the state’s Health and Human Services director, disclosed that information such as Medicaid ID numbers, names and addresses were taken by an employee.  Christopher Lykes Jr. was arrested.  Keck says he was fired last week but still hasn’t told authorities what he planned to do with the information from more than 228,000 people.  Lykes compiled the data over several months and then sent it to his private email account.
