Description

The Sentinel investigates the watchdogs of Florida's wheels-for-the-needy service, a program that provides transportation for the poor, elderly and disabled. This service is paid for by taxpayers, and The Sentinel discovered those who are appointed to oversee the program spend even more of the public's money and profiting from doing so. Many of those who sit on the Board of Directors for the program are the same people whose businesses benefit form how the money is spent. Some of the board members have ties to contributions to many legislators who have helped keep the board active and have made lenient regulations for the appointment and expansion of board members.
