CEO of troubled company overseeing care for NYC migrants resigns after being caught in a lie



The recent scandal involving the CEO of DocGo has sent shockwaves through New York City. Anthony Capone’s abrupt resignation came after it was revealed that he had lied about his educational background, causing the company to come under intense scrutiny for its $432 million no-bid contract with the city.

Capone’s resignation has left many questioning the integrity of the company, and the appointment of Lee Bienstock as the new CEO has raised eyebrows as well. The lack of transparency surrounding the contract with DocGo has prompted concerns about the quality of services being provided to migrants.

New York City Comptroller Brad Lander’s rejection of the contract has only added to the controversy, as he cited numerous outstanding issues and concerns, including the lack of budget detail and evidence of the company’s expertise to provide the contracted services.

Furthermore, the state Attorney General Letitia James has launched an investigation into DocGo, following accusations of providing inaccurate information to migrants and mistreatment by security personnel.

While DocGo began as a medical services company, its expansion into logistical operations to care for asylum seekers has raised questions about its capabilities and intentions.

As the company continues to seek lucrative contracts, the future of its involvement in migrant care remains uncertain.
