It looks like CPS is in trouble again. This time Laurie Roberts did an expose of CPS and detailed a case of abuse in the Arizona Republic in which the CPS agent investigating the case ultimately began a romantic relationship with the absuive father under investigation. Here is an excerpt from the column:
Instead, confidential documents suggest that Amy Gile actually helped an abusive father hang onto his kids, and later ignored the oldest child's plea for help. By then, she had become the abusive father's girlfriend.
So what, you might ask, did CPS do about it when one of the children showed up at day care in 2004 covered with welts and the story of Gile's romantic relationship became known?
We're waiting for the Napolitano spin cycle to ramp up on this one. This comes on the heels of Patrick Chorpennings testimony at the House-Senate Select Committee on the Arizona Veterans Home where Chorpenning pointed to the Governor as setting him up to be the fall guy for the fiasco surronding the scandal.
"It was a feeding frenzy and my one-legged butt went under the train, and I don't appreciate it."
We'd like to ask the Governor: Who's fault is the CPS situation and who's career is going to be ruined this time to protect yourself?
Represenattive Jonathan Paton (R-Tucson) has an equally important question for the Governor to answer. Yesterday, on the floor of the House, Representative Paton delivered an impassioned speech regarding the situation at CPS. In closing his remarks, he asked the Governor to answer the following:
"My question for the governor is this: What does it take to be fired from this agency? What do you have to do? How far does it have to go?"
Please Governor, take your time on the answers to these questions, it's not like the lives of children are at stake or anything.
