Description

When a state agency hires an interpreter for the deaf, others who applied for the position have concerns. We use the Freedom of Information Act to learn more about the hiring process and it soon becomes clear that the person picked for the job is not qualified but is well connected. Seven-On-Your-Side reporter Jason Pederson's continuing investigtion leads to legislative hearings and eventually attention from the governor. After two months Arkansas' deaf community gets what it wants and deserves: a competent person to do this important job.
