DHS leadership dysfunction is a feature, not a bug, of the agency

Following a Star Tribune report of another whistleblower alleging misconduct and retaliation by leadership at the Minnesota Department of Human Services, John Hinderaker, President of Center of the American Experiment, released a statement:

“The dysfunction and lack of accountability within DHS are clearly features, not bugs, of the agency. Whistleblowers under two different governors and two different commissioners have tried, and failed, to create a more honest culture from within. What we have here is either corruption, or a leadership vacuum. In either case, we must strengthen Minnesota’s whistleblower protections to make sure state employees who work for the taxpayers can call out wrongdoing without fear of retaliation.”
