MORE CABINET PROBLEMS FOR NIKKI HALEY
Months after this website began exposing a pattern of data manipulation at the S.C. Department of Social Services (SCDSS), state lawmakers FINALLY got around to requesting an audit of the agency.
According to The (Charleston, S.C.) Post and Courier, a group of lawmakers has asked the S.C. Legislative Audit Council (SCLAC) to conduct a comprehensive review of the agency – which hasn’t been audited in six years. While the probe – spearheaded by S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne (RINO-Charleston) – was prompted by problems with the agency’s child protection services, we hope that the agency’s so-called “welfare-to-work” program as well as its food stamp data will also receive some much-needed scrutiny.
SCDSS director Lillian Koller has been at the center of several scandals since she was appointed by Nikki Haley to run this agency. Meanwhile deputy director Isabel Blanco was recently suspended from her post for an undisclosed incident involving a subordinate.
