This was a response to a via e-mail submission for the GAO FraudNet, although it was a individual filing the claim for alleging the wrongful removals of children from a home because they could not investigate the case as a individual claim, unless it was a legislative committee member or Governor, or some one like the Secretary of the Kansas Department of Social Services, a Mayor, or a Senator a DA or Attorney General. Let’s put this response to the test and flood the DHHS in Washington to see what response we get back. Everyone call the
1-800-447-8477 to complain about what’s going on in your state.
