Fraud in child care system linked to lack of oversight

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Raquel Rutledge exposed flaws in Wisconsin’s taxpayer-financed child care system – and the case workers, supervisors and politicians responsible for costing taxpayers millions. In a two-part series, Rutledge  looked at the case of a woman who collected nearly $3 million in taxpayer money while running a questionable operation. For a decade, the government ignored many red flags and warning signs. A second story provided a deeper look at where accountability lies in the system, from Washington on down to the county level.
