Brownback trades child support contract for donations
Being an arrogant Tea Party governor means never having to apologize for being corrupted and taking bribes. That fact was made public by The Kansas City Star article “Brownback donor’s Mississippi company gets Kansas child support contract.”
According to the article;
“A Mississippi company run by one of Gov. Sam Brownback's donors has been awarded one of the four contracts to privatize Kansas child support enforcement.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that the Kansas Department for Children and Families announced Friday that Jackson, Miss.-based YoungWilliams Child Support Services was awarded one of the contracts. Company CEO Robert Wells and his wife, Pam, both gave maximum $2,000 donations to Brownback's campaign.”
Not only is Browback openly awarding contracts to those companies who have paid him off (bribery) but he is out to privatize government agencies that need to concentrate on the welfare of children and not on profiting off of people’s problems. The idea of privatizing these sensitive agencies that deal with child welfare is outright ridiculous. It is criminal to allow people to profit from other people’s tragedies. How do we know that a for-profit corporation is going to care about anything other than their bottom line of making money? Fairness will be a thing of the past since child support enforcement will now be about collecting money and fees only. Justice is now a commodity to buy and sell here in Kansas.
